Abstrakt. The article discloses professional practice of graphic designers in Ukrainian diaspora. From the Displaced Persons camps in the late 40’s Europe, travel to other continents, through the first years in new settlements, to the establishment of ethnic communities of the diaspora — graphic design played an important role in mass visual communication between emigrants. Based on archival documents, private correspondence, recorded interviews and publications in the periodical, this research clarifies the contexts in which projects for Ukrainian institutions were made. In contrast to the fine arts, in graphic design, relations with the customer, print and dissemination process played a major role.

Keywords: graphic design, Ukrainian diaspora, professional practice, commission, honoraria.
