–BOV / Branding for the library research project

  • –BOV
    research of the life and creation 
    of Nikolay Dobrolyubov

    Nikolay Dobrolyubov was a very mysterious person. He lived only twenty-five years and this left a significant imprint on the number of testimonies about his life. Memories about Dobrolyubov are fragmentary and very brief. Dobrolyubov was a true polymath and his short life was full of literary activity. However, the critic never signed his real name. Instead, he briefly signed «-BOV». 

    The purpose of this event is to explore a life of the Dobrolyubov and to open the veil of secrecy over this outstanding person.


  • An idea of the identity are "veils" that hide various elements and dynamically change their position, expanding and decreasing horizontally. The main elements of style are famous Dobrolyubov's quotes, various photos of the speakers at the event, paintings of Dobrolyubov, and facts from the biography of the critic.
