ABOUT







Nikolai Belkov

Russian graphic designer, who was selected to design the pictograms for the 1976 Olympic Games in Moscow. He did go about it in a systematic and geometric way. A bit of the history: On the OCOG-80’s request, graduates from several art colleges took up the design of the pictographs of the insignia as the theme of their dissertations. With the help of the research institute of industrial aesthetics, the Organizing Committee chose the work submitted by Nikolai Belkov, a Mukhina Art School graduate from Leningrad.
