Element Interview




Element Interview - a stimulation of job interviews that take place during Element Talks conference. We want our younger participants to have a chance to try how well they will do during a potential job interview with the employer. That is why we have invited representatives of respected design studios, advertising agencies and publishing houses to talk with our participants. More information can be found under Interviews.

Educational card game "Bękart" (Bastard)



This is our project which accompanies the conference. The card game is based on the rules of Old Maid (Black Peter). By using funny illustration, it explains the basic principles of typography and familiarises the little ones with those principles. In addition, Bękart game’s goal is to promote talented Polish designers. Each of the twelve authors invited to cooperate designed a pair of cards illustrating selected typographical term. You can find more information about the cards in our shop. Currently second edition of the cards is being produced, which will have its premiere during the conference, April 23, 2016.
