The story of Strzyzynska
Alicja Strzyzynska creates handmade furniture. Her objects are an attempt at a dialogue between the essence of fine art and the functionality of the design. Her aim is to create intimate objects that bring humans closer to nature. The collection is designed in an intuitive manner. Her experiments with sculptural textures are unique yet unpredictable.
Alicja's work cross between fine art and furniture. Her objects are organic yet refined. The brand needed to be designed with this ideology in mind. The challenge was to combine two distinct approaches while keeping the concept minimal.
Typography was selected to represent both the abstraction and the simplicity of the brand. The choice was to pair a modern font with sharp lines "Alethia Pro" and a more condensed and geometric font "IBM Plex Sans".
QUICK BROWN FOX
The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.
The client needed a website to display and sell her artworks in a minimal and intuitive way. The site layout is based on the divided segments, each containing a focus element. The works are proportionally integrated within a symmetric grid.
The mobile version of the website is built to mirror the simplicity in the desktop version. However, the grids are extended in order to blend in with the border of the screen in an attempt to use the device as the borders, bringing together the concept of fine art & minimal design.
