Expect lots of wordy things - independent magazines primarily - with plenty of reportage photography and great bits of design. There will also be occasional pieces of written reportage stories. It all comes down to time.

Modern Companies Re-Branded In USSR Style

In the latest instalment of "unexpected finds whilst wandering around Bēhance", here are some great company rebrands in the style of USSR era posters.

Growing up, my dad and his mate wore odd bits of CCCP or hammer and sickle emblazoned clothing. They're pretty socialist in emotional mindset and if they were going to be part of any political movement, beyond voting Labour every 5 years, it would be a successful Communist society.

Of course, as a kid, I just thought it was some sort of fashion statement related to them being history buffs. It probably was. I don't know.

Anyway, back to the project. They're fun (yet #makeyouthink) reinventions of Western Capitalist powerhouses into the closed shop that was the USSR. Nice work, Mike Levchenko.
