Biriukov was chiefly known for designing occupational safety posters and for posters with agricultural themes. He designed the following titles: “We are not like herbs, our union is mighty. We bring people abundance -- the key” (1962); “Mechanic, be certain: they are preparing a winter harvest!” (1964); “Decisions of the XXIV Congress of the CPSU - to life! October 10 is the All-Union Day of Agricultural Workers” (1971); "Let's give the country more potatoes!" (1976), "The quality of the products of the fields is the guarantee of the farmer!" (1977); "Let's Become Masters of Fields and Farms!" (1979); "Surplus production of subsidiary farms - to the state!" (1982); “XXVII Congress of the CPSU - We are ready to accomplish feats of labor!” (1986), to name a few.
