Geometry studies
Illustration
Follow up on a previous project, 36 Days of Type, I tried to use the experiences I gathered during the 36-day challenge, and extend that visual atmosphere a little further. As before, I wanted to create 2D images, using only very few colours and strict geometric elements that can also be seen as 3D objects.
Makrohang . Tour posters
Illustration, Layout, Photography
Various flyers and tour posters created for the Hungarian instrumental math-jazz band Makrohang. Here, I used my photographs and some generative versions of them made with Processing. These images were often augmented by vector illustrations to match their noisy but incredibly precise music. The rest of the posters can be seen here while you can check their music here.

Stalker for The Criterion Collection
Illustration, Layout
A collaboration with the Criterion Collection for the re-release of Andrei Tarkovsky’s timeless classic, Stalker. The goal was to build a bridge between Stalker’s cinematography and modern graphic design by using Tarkovsky’s photography, and to expand that with minimalistic illustrations. This involved making a limited-edition poster and a Blu-Ray box set, including the wrap, inserts, discs and menus.
Bruise
Layout, Photography
A funny little experiment I did with singer-songwriter Morningdeer about switching perspectives: contrary to our prior collaborations, first I created a custom artwork, which Kriszti wrote a song about, using my inspirations for the visuals to shape the sound that eventually became the last chapter of her EP, The Four Painters.
Imperfections
Illustration
Small illustrations with the goal of raising awareness about obsessive-compulsive disorders. Each of these little drawings contain a seems-to-be-minor-but-annoying-as-hell fault, which can trigger a form of OCD-related reaction in those affected. The pieces were distributed in the form of small posters and flyers in Budapest as part of a small-scale guerilla campaign.
36 days of type
Illustration
36 Days of Type is a project that invites designers to provide individual interpretations of the letters of our alphabet. My approach to this assignment mainly involved geometry: instead of a direct visualisation, I tried to depict letters as abstract, two-dimensional geometric forms, and experimented with their arrangement to create a false sense of space for the viewer.
