Sooner than later
Graphic Elisava 2020
Lots of things tend to happen during a graphic.elisava master’s program. Mountains of research. Maybe one or two existential crises. Designing so much that you have nightmares about mismatched hex codes.
In some weird twist of fate, this year’s biggest ‘thing’ ended up being a global pandemic. We were forced to embrace digitalism over presentialism, do more with less, and channel disillusionment into positivity. In school, the lesson comes before the test, but life often takes the opposite approach. We think we’re better for it.
PLATFORM AND IDENTITY
For this year’s degree show we decided to continue the digitalist lifestyle that we’ve come to know. Pills replace name tags, thumbnails replace handshakes, and ingenuity replaces normality in order to illustrate how we view topics like “design ethics”, “comfort”, “manifestos”, and “freedom”.
This is graphic.elisava’s digital Degree Show. Find out more about the program at graphic.elisava.net
Many thanks to this year’s students in the Graphic Design and the Editorial Design master’s degrees. The 2020 graphic.elisava Degree Show – both the platform and the campaign that precedes it – wouldn’t have been possible without the indefatigable work of a group of design students making time for it in the middle of their end-of-year presentations.

as a human right
Euthanasia is difficult to talk about. Discussion about this topic is hazy. It revolves around taboos in society, legality in countries, and perceptions about value of life.
Sooner than later, tries to paint a thorough picture with a focus on personal experiences as well as the practice of euthanasia.
Sooner than later explains this delicate topic by narrating the personal experiences of people as well as their friends and family.
When we talk about euthanasia, the world of an individual isn’t the only thing that collapses. Those with emotional and blood ties are forced to face a difficult task: to totally immerse themselves in a life filled with medication and physical decadence, whilst also giving voice to their loved ones and often having to make decisions in their place.
