Diploma 2012 The diploma is a visualization of the poem “Girl” by Bolesław Leśmian from the collection titled “Napój cienisty” (1936). Unfortunately, a translation of this poem is not available, therefore I present it in the original version. The poem tells the story of the desires of 12 brothers who heard the voice of a beautiful girl - their desire to break through a wall (to get to the girl), their fighting shadows, and finally their hammers breaking through the wall. They then realize that it was all a fiction and an illusion, because it was only the voice of the girl, and not actually her. The poem tells the story of a heroic battle, which is the purpose in itself. The the piece was created via video editing and simple animation. The purpose was to surprise the viewer with extreme simplicity, to draw the focus to the content of the poem.

Tarot The purpose of this project was to design a new initial font. The initial font was created using a rule – each letter is rotated 180°. Through this, 26 basic alphabet characters were created. Additionally, this complex font allows one to think about how far you can go in changing a character as not to lose its readability.

fonts Szczud The font is an attempt to create a cut to facilitate the reading of people with impaired reading. This is a type of sheryff font to increase the diversity of characters such as ‘p’ , ‘d’ , ‘p’ , ‘q’. The sheriff is thicker in order to emphasize the place of letters and increase their diversity. Additionally, it has a longer extension of the bottom to increase the optical space between the letters. It has not been tested yet, it is only a hypothesis based on theoretical knowledge.

Interactive book about designing for people with dislexia

Theoretical posts

The purpose of this project was designing an interactive book, which would be a dialogue between designers and psychologists, leading to creating options for helping people with specific reading impairments. Apart from substantive content, the book will contain interviews, discussions with psychologists and designers as to ease the understanding of its content. (I am dyslexic myself, so I prefer to portray the work dynamically rather than write about it, hence the idea to combine a book with film).

Abstract of the bachelor’s diploma of Jan Duda The work contains a discussion of selected studies on the impact of text parameters on the quality of reading by dyslexic individuals. In conclusion, it was stated that interdisciplinary studies should be initiated, involving psychophysiologists and typographists to build fonts that would ease reading for these dyslexic individuals. The first chapter contains

a brief introduction on the history of discovering reading disabilities, a definition of ‘dyslexia’, and a discussion of the results of studies of the causes of dyslexia as well as data regarding dyslexia in the Polish society. The second chapter discusses the current state of dyslexia studies, with special attention paid to studies of the impact of text parameters on understanding of text by dyslexic individuals. In the third chapter, basic rules of typography and a critical font analysis of fonts for dyslexic individuals are discussed. Jan Duda portfolio 7

Media Copy - original The project has been used AR technology (Augmented Reality). The aim of the project was to show that in modern times it is difficult to determine what is a copy and what is original. Physical elements of the installation were two archaic stamps that read “COPY” and “ORIGINAL”. after stamping “copy”, the word “original” appeared on the screen, and vice versa: after stamping “ORIGINAL” appeared the word “COPY”. The effect is to encourage the viewer to consider what role it plays in today’s world.

Republic 2.0 The project was developed with the help of the program Animata and sensor Kinect. This resulted in an interactive puppet that moves synchronously with the person involved with the installation. The project was inspired by the slogans that appear on demonstrations. The same puppet had its simple passwords change the meaning of other terms.
