July 7,1882 – June 28, 1942 – was the pen name of Ivan Daminikavich Lutsevich, a Belarusian poet and writer. Kupala is considered one of the greatest Belarusian-language writers of the 20th century. Kupala's first serious literary attempt was Ziarno, a Polish-language sentimental poem which he completed around 1903–1904 under the pseudonym "K-a." His first Belarusian-language work ("Мая доля") was dated July 15, 1904. Kupala's first published poem, "Мужык" ("Peasant"), was published approximately a year later, appearing in Belarusian in the Russophone Belarusian newspaper Severo-Zapadnyi Krai (Northwestern Krai) on May 11, 1905. A number of subsequent poems by Kupala appeared in the Belarusian-language newspaper Nasha Niva from 1906 to 1907.
Great people and their achievements were inspiration to us. People that are able to change the world for the better exist in each corner of our immense world, be it small or big. Each of us, regardless of profession, age, sex or nationality, contributes to the development and to the movement of all humanity – the love of the vocation, the sincerity of intentions and the sense of purpose.
The posters were worked out in Adobe Photoshop. A suitable photograph of a person, whose portrait will afterwards be the center of the poster composition, was selected. By copying a text fragment from the biography of a person (in their native language) the text shape of the portrait was created over the photograph. The font was selected to be suitable by style to the portrait and to depict the person’s qualities. The posters were printed on matte paper in A1 size. This size offers the opportunity not only to accept the image in the whole, but also to take a closer look at the high level of the posters granularity.
We wanted every person to understand that each action, even insignificant at first sight, has a strong hold over the inner world and the human view of life in the whole. An individual is reflected in their actions and deeds. Nature is made up of little things. All people are unique and have boundless opportunities for self-realisation. The cooperation of people around the world offers the opportunity to information, skills and experience to be transferred from one person to another, from nation to nation, from generation to generation.
11 May 1904 – 23 January 1989, known as Salvador Dalí was a prominent Spanish surrealist painter born in Figueres, Catalonia, Spain.
Dalí was a skilled draftsman, best known for the striking and bizarre images in his surrealist work. His painterly skills are often attributed to the influence of Renaissance masters. His best-known work, The Persistence of Memory, was completed in August 1931. Dalí's expansive artistic repertoire included film, sculpture, and photography, in collaboration with a range of artists in a variety of media.
We wanted to work out 9 posters and 1 video presentation that would bring a deep philosophical and learning meaning. The biographies, the information about achievements and the photographs of famous people from different countries were studied. After extended discussions the portraits for the posters and the video presentation were picked out. The combination of typographics and photografica was selected among numerous graphic styles for the project implementation.
