author: Rozalia Valeeva

Professional exhibition of graphic design “Signs of Time”, organized by one of Ufa art studios, was opened in the art gallery “MIRAS” today. The symbol of Russian ruble, personage for International Winter Children Games and the logo of the main Republican TV-channel BST, designed just for three days, can be called the main works of the art group.

“The image of a bird for BST was chosen not accidentally” – the art director of the studio Ilshat Baiburin says – “Everybody can see this winged silhouette in the sky above Bashkir steppes. As a result, we received such allegory with good high-quality TV: the bird has good eyesight and flies fast. We faced the task with two mutually exclusive points: from one side TV should be modern and European from the point of view of aesthetics and from another side it should contain certain national coloring”.

The most interesting and noticeable projects of the studio are demonstrated at the exhibition, for example the logo of celebration of the jubilee “The 150th anniversary of the gymnasium N3”, designed in co-authorship with pedagogues of the gymnasium. About 200 logos can be watched on the slides, demonstrated on a wide screen.

“We believe that this exhibition will become that stone, which waves spread from” – Ilshat Baiburin says – “We’d like to organize the days of graphic design in Ufa. Such days are regularly held in Yekaterinburg and Chelyabinsk and we believe that our city deserves such actions too. People, working in sphere of graphic design, are always found in search of new forms because the method, used in one project, can’t be used in another one. One has to know how to find fresh solutions. We hope that our exhibition will stir Ufa designers up and the situation will change for the better”.

The exhibition will work till April 13 and admission is free.
