Кипр, май 2018
19 май 2018

As you can see, I am a passionate traveller. I really love Asia and I wanted to go to Goa in May. But plans changed and we went to Cyprus.

What can I say about Cyprus? It is a mixture of cultures. It is blue sea and wind. It is freedom and delivious food. I like it!

We stayed in Aya-Napa – a great place for young people. However, it would be silly to stay in Aya-Napa all the time we spent there. We took couple buggies first, then jumped into the cabriolet and started exploring the island.

We visited most popular towns and beaches (Larnaka, Limassol, Pafos, Protaras) and the capital (Nikosia). We swam, jumped in the sea, tasted wine in the mountains. We ate Meze. It was a most crazy and coolest week ever!

I believe we will definitely get back to Cyprus. There are still plenty of places we would love to visit there. Moreover, it is not that far from Russia and the prices are quite OK there.

Wish you safe trips! Live, travel, enjoy!

One month in Thailand. December 2017 – January 2018. Bangkok
17 февраль 2018

Bangkok — a city of contrasts. I visited other huge Asian cities before and I was expecting to see a similar city. But Bangkok is so different! Here you see a skyscraper and just beside – a slum. You can drink delicious wine and taste incredible seafood in a wonderful restaurant on the 80th floor, but you can also grab a few pineapples or sausages at the street and enjoy it in the dirty corner. So the life is very, very different there.

For street food lovers (like me) Bangkok is the paradise. You are never gonna be hungry there. You will always find something to eat even though it is 7am or 11pm.

Apart from that, Bangkok is really beautiful. There is no place in the world where you can find so many magnificent temples. They are everywhere: just walk and you will find them. We visited both touristic and local temples. We are not against touristic places, but the real city is definitely somewhere in non-touristic areas.

After we left Bangkok, an idea came to my mind – what if some of the people who live in Bangkok do not need all this civilization? Look, they really enjoy sitting somewhere an the street eating their favourite Pad Tai. They love visiting markets and searching for some food there. They love song teo rather than metro. They love simple life. They are so close to the earth, to their roots, and they probably even do not need anything else. Not everyone, of course. Just an idea :)

Иконки линий метро в Лиссабоне
18 август 2017

У каждой ветки есть своя иконка. И каждая из них очень милая. Это не просто какой-то типовой значок. Это символы страны мореплавателей!

Из гугла:

Синяя линия называется “Линия чайки”, ее символ чайка летящая над волнами. “Линия подсолнуха” – желтая линия, ее эмблема, соответственно, подсолнух. Зеленая – “Линия Каравеллы” и на эмблеме как раз каравелла. Наверное это связано с тем, что линия идет до порта. И красная линия, самая молодая, “Линия Востока”, она идет на восток, а также на восточный вокзал “Ориенте”. Символ красной линии – роза ветров.

Такие иконки быстро запоминаются, и выстраиваются ассоциации, которые помогают ориентироваться в метро.

Особенно классные большие подсвечивающиеся на черном фоне!

Иконка хамонерии в Барселоне
12 август 2017

Это иконка обозначает хамонерию — место, где подают хамон.
А сама иконка представляет собой хамонеру — специальную доску для нарезки хамона.

Глаз дизайнера ничего не упустит!


Эволюция логотипа

О том, как менялся логотип Real Madrid.

Кстати, вариант 1908 года очень даже ничего.
