Znak: Ukranian Trademarks, 1960–80s

We know what you’re thinking: Another book about Ukranian trademarks?! But this one is different. First, you’ve never seen one before, so, end of story. Presented by U,N,A collective, Znak is an exploratory project on the history of graphic design in Ukraine, and in particular on the field of corporate identity. Visual and textual narratives coexist in the book, which addresses the subject from a wider chronological view, from the early 20th-century avant-garde to the present. Of particular focus is the Kharkiv school of industrial graphics, revealed through archive materials and noteworthy names that you’ve never heard before. Detailing various processes and influential highlights, the book offers rare insight into Ukrainian graphic design in both regional and global contexts. A perfect introduction to different perspectives on simple graphic symbols.
