    Early in 2017 the Vladivostok GUM (the name of the main department store in many cities of the former Soviet Union, known as State Department Store) was reopened after three years of remodelling. The building has long history, it was build in 1907 on Svetlanskaya Street in Vladivostok by Kunst and Albers, a German trading company in Russian Empire. After the Revolution when the Soviet Union was alined, the building was still used as a mall and warehouse.

These days when the USSR is gone the Vladivostok GUM is still as it was originally constructed and purposed a shopping mall, and through times and in all states fulfiled this function. I used this beautiful old fashioned logo and small details that are relatable to sea to underline that Vladivostok once was and these days is honored again to become a porto franco, and the GUM is one of the most famous city's symbols.
