Patterns Inspired by the City of Lublin
The project Wzory Lublina by Polish graphic designer Tomasz Smutek is a collection of patterns inspired by details of the city of Lublin. The patterns were inspired by interesting architectural details, graffiti, characteristic arrangement of windows or columns, well-known buildings, floors, architecture of v-shaped supports, store signs, facade decorations, roof shapes, benches, and sculptures. The photographs feature such buildings as the Center for the Meeting of Cultures in Lublin, the Maria Curie-Skłodowska University Library, the defunct Kosmos cinema, the building of the Catholic University of Lublin, Lublin Castle, the Trinity Tower, the Academic Canteen of the Maria Curie-Skłodowska University, Litewski Square, the archcathedral of Lublin, and the tenements of the Old Town.
The patterns were developed in the form of monochromatic graphics presented together with photographs of objects of our city, on the basis of which they were created. The project was carried out on a scholarship of the President of Lublin.
Idea and Design: Tomasz Smutek
