Designer and art director Edgar Bąk, of Edgar Bąk Studio, is an expert visual communicator specializing in print, branding, and illustration work, as well as music and poster art.
And it’s his poster work that recently caught our eye. His poster designs are exquisitely simple—but that simplicity is deceptive. With geometric shapes, bold colors, and expertly placed type, Bąk clearly communicates complex ideas. He calls it “maximum content in minimal expression.”
Bąk’s posters for Warsaw’s Centrum Nauki Kopernik (Copernicus Science Centre) are an excellent example of this work. These unconventional posters are cheeky, daring, and elegant. The Centrum Nauki Kopernik is popular with Warsaw’s children, but it also has monthly “adult” evenings—events that focus on a particular subject (such as sex, vision, or time), with gallery exhibits, expert lectures, discussions, and grownup beverages. So far, Bąk has made posters for more then a dozen of these events and will continue with more as the events continue.
