2020 CALENDAR WITH ILLUSTRATIONS IN COLLAGE TECHNIQUE FOR BPS-SBERBANK

CUSTOMER: BPS-Sberbank
 
ASSIGNMENT: Development of a 2020 calendar with illustrations in collage technique
PROJECT DESCRIPTION:


We have chosen to use the images of 12 Belarusian cities with their authentic architecture as representations of the 12 months for the illustrations of the 2020 BPS-Sberbank calendar. All visuals are made in the collage technique, which enabled us to develop unique compositional solutions. For this project, we combined architectural landmarks ranging from the neo-Gothic style to Soviet constructivism with textured and seemingly incompatible elements.

The context of those artworks is quite simple: architecture may stand on its own without the city. Despite the peculiar futurist nature of the pieces, they are fascinating pictorial puzzles, to which you can attribute your own meanings rather than look for any logical underpinnings. We will now tell you about the work process of our designer and show you the final result:

 

 

1. LIDA

I visual terms, this illustration shows a castle in the middle of the jungle with clearly exotic inhabitants. Our designer is probably well aware of the fantastic creatures inhabiting it.

2. MINSK

Dinner is served! A signature dish from the chef represents the south of France that our designer never visited. The Minsk City Hall building strewn with snow from a golden salt cellar clearly features as a luxury hotel in this resort.

3. BORISOV

This year, Mercury will be retrograde three times over. We wish FC BATE Borisov to finally win succeed someplace else except for the Borisov Arena.

4. VITEBSK

Check out archival National Geographic reports! We bet you could find dolphins in Vitebsk a while ago, along with strange plants flowering near the porches.

5. PINSK

A leap of imagination took our designer to the landscapes of Mars, where you can admire Pinsk sights against the backdrop of desert terrain. It may be just that the rovers haven’t yet discovered that city that at the heart of that planet.

6. BOBRUISK

Here you can see Bobruisk emerging from foam like the goddess Aphrodite. Please, remember that earning the love of this city is as difficult as climbing Mount Everest. Bobruisk is a sort of beacon for all wayfarers. On a relevant note, our designer thinks that the city is also home to best disco parties.

7. GOMEL

A donut hole may be an entry point to many things: a baroque-style mansion re-imagined as part of a ski resort or a count walking his hounds.

8. SVETLOGORSK

It seems that, in Svetlogorsk, you can find the stuff legends are made from, like the magic fern flower. The romantic architectural details in the neo-Gothic style that you see here are only comparable with the grace of a ballerina.

9. BREST

Judging by the designer’s idea, Brest is a kind of transition point between heaven and hell on earth. You can also have a delicious meal of pasta here (not really), and, in general, people say that the city is good, since even birds come here to stay overwinter.

10. GRODNO

Grodno is re-imagined as a modern-day Noah’s ark for millennials, complete with a skate park. Well, or a kind of the Fort Boyard on the banks of the Neman.

11. MOGILEV

Mogilev is just the tip of the iceberg. To get closer, you need to defeat an actual monster of the deep – the giant whale guarding the city.

12. POLOTSK

The Milky Way will probably take you to the Polotsk Land, and nobody knows who you can meet there.
