The «Lviv - UNESCO City of Literature» Office has been in existence since 2015 and is based in the City Palace of Culture named after Hnat Hotkevich. The office is a team of cultural managers who are responsible for the promotion and project support of the title "UNESCO City of Literature" at the local, national and international levels. The team's tasks also include communication with and reporting to UNESCO for the title granted to the city. In fact, the Office "Lviv - UNESCO City of Literature" is an institution that contributes to the implementation and development of the strategy declared in the application for the title, and is an intermediary between the city authorities and the literary environment.


The UNESCO City of Literature office, as you know, is part of the large network of UNESCO's creative cities. 2018 was the year of preparation of the report on implemented projects. We prepared such a digital report in pdf format for the official page of UNESCO. The design of the report is made in the colors of the official identity of the UNESCO Cities of Literature office. Divided into separate elements and areas of activity. The design is based on the letters of the Cyrillic alphabet. As used as graphic textures. The sizes of the letters are increased and adjusted to the pages in such a way as to create the effect of a pattern, a certain pattern, or an illustration. For this purpose, unique letters of the alphabet Е, Й, Г, Ж are used, which are different from the usual letters of the Latin alphabet.
The booklet contains 73 pages and is supplemented with photos from events and infographics. The greatest attention is focused on the 83rd congress of PeN, which took place in Lviv, here the infographic is more detailed and detailed The main task was to structure all the information provided by the office and convey it in the form of an understandable, illustrated portfolio. This implies the rethinking and grouping of the presented material, the creation of a certain information architecture. This reporting digital document later became the basis for the Office's portfolio booklet, implemented in 2021.
