In this poster, I explore the concept behind creative ecstasy, which is basically the meaning of my username. The funny part is that originally the word "REZTOKIA" didn't have any meaning, but a while back, I started working on a proper top-to-bottom branding for "REZTOKIA," and part of that was finding a reasoning behind the word. I already knew the message, so I decided to generate an etymology with ChatGPT, and it came up with something absolutely perfect. The word "REZTOKIA" is derived from the combination of the Latin word "res," meaning "thing," and the Greek word "tokos," meaning "birth." Not only does this work perfectly with my brand and brand messaging, but the meaning goes much deeper than those words. If you take the time to dive into the old Greek philosophy, you'll find very similar concepts of creative ecstasy and the fulfillment of doing deep creative work. If you want to read more about this, it's all in the text column on the poster! Aesthetically, I was really inspired by @alessioborando and his "El Oasis" project. I also really wanted to try out a new technique where you convert images to text, in this case, ASCII.
