Dima Abrakadabra — Saint-Petersburg, Russia

“Typography is a way of demonstrating emotions. The nature of the lines, the direction of the strokes, the composition — all these things help recreate the specific mood of a work and through this mood, the author can translate his emotional state, thoughts and other ideas to the viewer. In my daily life, I’m pretty calm because by creating letters, I can stay away from anger and negative thoughts.”

“Written words are arbitrary symbols, bearing no resemblance to the things they represent,” says the Saint Petersburg-based graphic designer/calligraphy artist known as Dima AbraKadabra, who is challenging this by shaping words to represent the signified action or feeling.
