2008's Second Honorable Mention

DESIGNER Krzysztof Piatkowski
SCHOOL School of Visual Art
YEAR Junior
MAJOR Graphic Design
INSTRUCTOR Mitch Shostak

What was the biggest challenge in creating your entry?
The biggest challenge was to convey speed, motion, the overall extreme rush of snowboarding using type composition against sort of a static image of Shaun White.

What was your inspiration in creating your entry?
SPEED, balance and snowboarding subculture was the inspiration. I do snowboard myself, so I know how speed is critical in this sport especially when doing extreme style like Shaun White. Also the handwritten type was used to create that connection with loose lifestyle, a lot of times associated with professional snowboarders.

Do you participate in any publication- or design-related campus activities?
Design workshops with various designers.

What are your favorite magazines?
I like a lot of magazines, but the ones I read regularly are Print, How, New York. Archive is a great inspiration and of course my roommate’s Time Out New York. I like their covers.

What do you want to do while in New York for your internship?
I want to see how it is to work for a magazine, experience the editorial side of design. Most of all, to have fun I guess.
