This is my poster submission for the group exhibition I co-organized at 16/6/2013 at Afaneis Bar cafe.
Together with Yannis Petris aka John TheGraph we invited several young designers to take part in this venture .
In an era that every value has been flattened and stress has overwhelmed our daily lives, young people feel like a speck in the universe, hidden as if go unnoticed in the work arena. However, many of us, being optimistic and positive believe it is in our hands to take creative initiatives to bring about change in this sad situation that we experience daily, to promote and introduce ourselves to our social environment. Therefore,
we decided to use the word inconspicuous as a concept both timely and multidimensional as the unsung word symbolically transformed through an exhibition of new and emerging artists and graphic designers that will decorate the venue of the eponymous coffee bar Afaneis at Exarchia.
The issue of (A)FANEIS is a game of words in greek as a determination of the word obscue/inconspicuous through the perspective of each designer. Allowing free technique was crucial so that everyone visualized a concept as broad as the "obscurity"giving the dimensions they wished for.
The participants were the above:
