Dadaism Postcards

Dadaism Postcards

Dadaism Postcards

For this project, I was tasked with designing postcards inspired by the statement “The meaning of life”. The postcards had to follow the style of the early 20th-century art movement “dadaism”. The goal of the brief was to help us learn to keep an open mind to different kinds of sources of inspiration. Dadaistic artwork can often look quite surreal, and hence attempting to create it will help push us out of our comfort zone as designers to create something different.


This project is still ongoing.

Understanding Dadaism & Refrences

I researched the history of dadaism and looked for references to old and new forms of dadaism, and also any work that could help inspire my designs, even if it itself was not dadism.

With some visual references in mind, I focused on the ideas from my mind map that I found the most interesting and sketched down some ideas for potential designs.
