In 2007 Bulgaria joined the European Union and the Cyrillic alphabet became the third official alphabet in the EU. ALPHAPRETATION BULGARIA, part of Sofia Design Week 2012, is a project that sees the Bulgarian alphabet as more than just a set of graphic signs – it should be interpreted as a unifying code of cultural symbols that represent our whole identity. All 30 letters of the Cyrillic alphabet are being associated with 30 symbols of Bulgaria's daily life, values and mentality.

The here presented drawings are the interpretation of the letters ‚Д‘ for ‚души‘ (souls in Bulgarian) and ‘Ю‘ for ‚юнак‘ (braver, hero).
