    HUMANITY: poster series for Gwangju Design Biennale (GDB) 2019 – 광주디자인비엔날레, International Invitational Poster Exhibition, held at the Asia Culture Center (ACC), Gwangju, South Korea, 2019.

    The poster series combines the classic forms and vertical axis with sharp pointy serifs in Cirka, the boasting monospace/geometric features and the apparently contemporary ink traps in Neue Machina, with the broken curves and the strong contrast between thick & thin lines in Blocus with its Gothic manuscript style. Masked by the illustration, bits of Nostra Stream can be spotted on the right hand of the designs.

    HUMANITY, the combination of HUMAN+COMMUNITY, extends its concept from an individual to a community level by co-existing and considering the surrounding environment and people around “me.” Usually our human-centered thinking forces us to neglect the meaning of being humans, social thinkers and adaptive creatures, to alter ourselves or overcome the peer pressure. The purpose here is to express the current scene of HUMANITY, also it could be used as a documentation for an upcoming NON-HUMAN civilization, who knows?!
