Publisher: Konst.ru
Olymp80 was developed by Konstantin Boldovskiy and published by Konst.ru. Olymp80 includes 2 designs and family plan options. p > Dedicated to the XXII summer Olympic Games. I was influenced by the icons of these games when producing font Olymp80.

This is an excerpt from the main report of the Moscow Olympics:

' Sports pictographs, as we know, are pictographic drawings symbolising sports. They serve as points of referral and aid conquer language barrier. Over the past couple of years, they have been incorporated into the decor of Olympic cities, and have actually been illustrated in Olympic posters, commemorative medals, postage stamps, tickets, keepsakes, etc.

On the OCOG-80's request, graduates from several art colleges took up the design of the pictographs of the insignia as the style of their dissertations. With the aid of the research institute of industrial aesthetic appeals, the Organising Committee chose the work sent by Nikolai Belkov, Mukhina Art School graduate from Leningrad.

The State Committee for Inventions and Discoveries under the USSR Council of Ministers acknowledged the brand-new design as a production pattern. Though highly stylised, the brand-new signs are quickly comprehensible. They are smoother in overview due to the fact that they are constructed at an angle of 30-60 (previously the angle was 45-90).

Another merit of the new system is that the styles can be adjusted for use in four representations: direct (strong, black versus a white background), reverse (solid, white versus a black background), shape (black contour against a white background), and reverse-contour (white contour versus a black background), and permit numerous colour and shade and size variations.'

All text and photos you might see on 1980 Moscow, Volume 2, Part 2, Page 420.
