HOME IS HOME
The initial assignment was extremely difficult: „Design a new form of the Czech national flag and create a new national anthem, including lyrics and musical form.“ By choosing the topic, we wanted to contribute to the progressing debates on the visual layout of the Czech republic, and show how broadly can the ways of understanding and forming the promotion of Czech republic be seen by young blood of graphic design. I am not aware of any more demanding task; myself I consider both the flag and the anthem being a high quality and historically settled issue, involving a great scope of sentiment. As a matter of fact, setting assignments of such difficulty has nearly grown into our studio’s agenda. We want our students to be exposed to tricky obstacles and forced to comprehend design in its broader sense. In the end, I was delighted that the given topic has become the initial point of wider reflections. As the result you can, apart from seeing visionary concepts of flags and hearing wild samples of the anthem, climb up the Czech republic’s highest peak Sněžka, enjoy pieces of Adam’s clothing for inside and out of home, find out if white version of the flag is the right one for the proud Czech nation or, if it’s possible to just sing Here is my home instead of Where is my home.
