Anniversary Project: ALAIN MIKLI JAPON x przemek

I would like to introduce one of my recent projects which I am very proud of – a collaboration with ALIAN MIKLI JAPON for their Anniversary Project, for which I did the main art direction.
It was an amazing journey to look into the history of such an iconic brand and do a proper research on it.
The checked pattern I have created is a direct reference to the characteristic pattern used by the brand for years.
All in the classic black and coral red colours in the shapes of optical illusion and deformations as a reminescence of magnifying glass or rain drop.
Based on the pattern I have created window displays for two anniversary boutiques in Minami-aoyama and Marunouchi
as well as there were issued a special limited edition of glasses – created here locally in Japan – especially on this occasion.
The project is also me coming back to my basis which is more design field, and a little bit less illustration this time.
The Anniversary Project will carry on at Minami-Aoyama and Marunouchi stores till the end of July. Please visit!

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2014 with peace & love

test6-9According to Chinese Horoscope the year of the HORSE has just begun – on this occasion getting back to those moments when you truly feel in peace, content, loved and relaxed, full of inner “silence” but also full of creative energy just about to erupt, when you are complete and in order, back to happy childhood days, surrounded by nature and people you love, summer and the garden parties, sun, birds and nothing else – when you deep inside feel happy in the moment – wishing you to keep it alive every second of your life to make it even more real and last forever. Love Yourself even more in this Happy New Year 2014 – let it go and let it flow. Love. P.
