In my visual answer to the obstructions
I decided to keep the basic colours of my stickers:
yellow, green, black and white,
to use typography as an emotional and visual language,
to use cute, crushed, folded colored papers as background of my posters.


The small and inderect visual language of the stickers is counter productive to the goal. The use of the language of the street signs connects them also to the language of “The Public System” which it is opposing. Using clear messages and simple emotional structures involves the reader instead of telling him/her. Text rules over images.

NEW – EUBG – URBAN COMMUNICATION : Off-line and on-line urban action/installation


The concept of this project focuses on Sofia as a place of different conflicts and contrasts; a place where it’s increasingly hard to live in, breathe, move and consume. I made series of graphic signs printed on stickers (9×9 cm). The idea of the project is to mark different urban design or architecture object in the city of Sofia and to provoke communication and reflection.

(Why not some other city ;) ). Conceptually, they cover part of the titles:

An ugly building / An ugly architecture / Inhumane architecture
Grass plots – “NO”/ Grass plots forbidden
Forbidden for mothers with prams / Inaccessible for prams
A killer-building / A crumbling building
A city design that has fallen ill / A sick city design / A city design with prosthesis
