Kemistry Gallery...

I visited the Kemistry Gallery in Shoreditch to see an exhibition by a Polish design company Homework. Since forming in 2003, Warsaw-based studio Homework has been creating posters for cultural events. Joanna Górska and Jerzy Skakun have created a distinctive style that has seen them garner prizes at poster biennials across the world as well as gallery exhibitions in Paris and Berlin. I was impressed with the range of styles and contexts their work had, it was all very diverse and experimental. It surprised me a little to learn that Homework only design posters, as this seems like a very limiting design practice. However, they're clear passion and love of design shows through in their work, and helps it to become something more than just a poster.
