Lecture at Facebook headquarters

Poster announcing my internal lecture at Facebook headquarters in Menlo Park, California on October 12th. The talk was part of the Facebook design lecture series. At the lecture I spoke about The Design of Dissent and Symbols of Hate. Facebook will soon be posting the video of the lecture making it available online.

Tolerance show at Facebook headquarters

Few photographs of the Tolerance show at Facebook headquarters in Menlo Park, California. The set up of the show was a bit different then usual, they printed small versions of the posters and posted them throughout their campus, both with existing art and design, and also on their own. They showed posters from 47 designers from around the world.

The Medium is the Message

The smile on my face isn’t just because I’m at Facebook’s headquarters, but also because (Thanks to Scott Boms) I hold in my hand the prototype of Marshall McLuhan’s "The Medium is the Message" book. In my opinion, this is one of the 100 most important books of the 20th century. "The Medium
is the Message" was designed by and the prototype was assembled by Quentin Fiore and still has Marshall’s notes and corrections.

Madrid - The Light City

As one of the judges for The Light City, competition organized by the festival Madrid Grafica '17,
I was invited to design a poster for the show, without competition. Most honestly if it was in the competition, I don't think it would've made the cut seeing the quality of the selected posters.

The posters are displayed in front of Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, which made me happy for two reasons. That's the same museum where Pablo Picasso's Guernica is. And, as you can see from the signage on the museum, they're also hosting a big show NSK from Kapital to Capital by my friends from the Neue Slowenische Kunst. Maybe one day I'm gonna make my
way in too, although I hope it won't be posthumously.

Posters for a new season

I'm pleased to announce the beginning of cooperation with The Yugoslav Drama Theater in Belgrade, Serbia. I will be designing their posters for the season 2017/2018.

The first poster is for the play Einstein's Dreams by Alan Lightman, directed by Slobodan Unkovski, which will be premiered on October 15th.

The play fictionalizes Albert Einstein as a young scientist who is troubled by dreams as he works on his theory of relativity in 1905, and each dream involves a conception of time.

The second poster is for the play Mercy Seat by Neil LaBute directed by Jana Maričić, whose premiere is scheduled for November.

It's a 2002 play that was among the first major theatrical responses to the September 11, 2001 attacks. Set on September 12, it concerns Ben, a man who worked at the World Trade Center but was away from the office during the attack, with his mistress, Abby, who is also his boss. Expecting that his family believes that he was killed in the towers' collapse, Ben contemplates using the tragedy to run away and start a new life with his lover.
