TIME TO SHOW MY HAND
What do you get today? Show your cards. I'm checking.
My name is Jerzy Tchórzewski. I'm a freelance art director and a founder of independent design studio - Jest Studio based in Cracow in 2010.
I design posters and visual identities, but I am notafraid to experiment. The poster is my first love as well as a sign or system of signs – the creation of systems serving to identify a space or an idea, as well as a brand, service or product. Functionality, Concept and Experimentation are the driving forces behind my personal activities as well as those of the studio.
Why doesn’t the king have a crown? Why does the queen prefer lipstick than sceptre? Isn’t the jack too trusting? What does the queen see on her mobile phone? Does the king cry over Paris? The figures are ourself. We earn money and if we do not earn money, we put them out on colours. We drown in the waters of fear and hope like refugees in Mediterranean Sea. Like invalids of persuasion we prefer the language of strength. We shoot remote control in our heads.We close our eyes not to see the problem and we take selfie. We prefer to force to love than love truly. Overwhelmed by money, we lose ourself. The pigeons of peace closed in chest. Maybe it is better to look into starry sky or maybe the sky looks on us? What do you get today? Show your cards. I am checking.
