So, these are some items from my own identity. Well actually these are all the items from my identity, but the cards are all one of a kind, and I made quite a few of them.
Once again, this was a school assignment from last year.
I'll leave you with a quote from Ellen Lupton's Thinking with Type.

"A graphic designer can set out to change the world one business card at a time - as l ong as it is the business card of a really interesting person."

Inspiration: Drawings and Sketches by Degas

Full of restatements... and I think that's what makes them so beautiful.
Young Degas once met Old Dominique Ingres. Old Ingres told him he should draw and draw and draw. So, he would draw and draw and draw. To my greatest joy.

Bottle Design

Another school assignment from last semester, but this time it was for real, only, it was not my work that got chosen for the real deal. But never mind.
We had to design bottle and labels for three kinds of spirits. This was a new territory, going 3D, but I enjoyed it. I'd love to learn studiomax but this time I still depended on my brother with it.

Some Croquis from our 2007 School Camp

These gesture drawings were made at our school's summer camp site back in 2007. The site is located in Tihany (Hungary) at a lake up on a hill. The little donkey was not part of the wildlife but the ducks were.
It's too bad we only went to this camp just once, at the beginning of our second year at university.

Inspiration: Degas

Just look at the rhythm. Needless to say, I love Edgar Degas.
It can be clearly seen, that the first painting is an earlier one.
In my opinion, this is a tendence that we see with great painters: as they grow older and more experienced, they don't bother to say more with more, instead, they manage to say more with less. And I think that is why the lower two are so fabulous. I just can't get enough of them.
I'm sure that sooner or later I'll take up painting.

Inspiration: Sutnar

I don't know much about Vladimir Sutnar, pioneer of what we now call information design, but I certainly like these pieces from his oeuvre. Diagonals make these works move. Also, I like the idea of combining photography with simple shapes. And I like that he uses color sparingly (regardless of whether this is due to contemporary printing technology or not).


A poster for the 30th anniversary of the National Industrial Design Awards in Hungary. This was a school assignment. This last semester, among other things, we had to make a few potsers, mostly for films.
