    Art director: Not quite.

    Designer: I learned that there is Degtyarev factory in Kovrov which for a long time produced machine guns. So I made a pattern with machine gun bullets.

    Art director: Will the residents get it?

    Designer: In fact, a local resident asked me to make the pattern based on this theme. Though he asked for motorcycles and machine guns, but I thought they would be too complex and obvious for a sign pattern. So I chose the machine gun bullet: it’s recognizable, graphic and symbolic.

    Art director: Let’s make a pattern out of motorcycles and machine guns.

    Designer: I used exactly what they produce.

    Art director: Good.
