Back in my day we loved our politicians

Visual identity and supporting design materials for an exhibition in Samos and Athens.

Anatomy of Political Melancholy was a group exhibition on contemporary disillusionment. Curator Katerina Gregos describes it as one that “probes the increasing and widespread loss of faith in politics and politicians today.” A visual identity was produced for the two-part exhibition, drawn up via block colour and fragmented motifs.

Those that do not bruise

Graphic design for a photographic artist book.

Fruit of the Womb welds together a series of ceramic work by the German-Iranian artist Nigin Beck. The book’s photography sets the delicate objects — fruits of Beck’s youth and family — amongst their raw counterparts in a Berlin market scene. The series was collated into a 44-page book and presented inside an embossed dust jacket.
