EDUCATION

School of building and craft, Čakovec, Croatia (2005 – 2009, High school)
— Designer of Multimedia Content

That was a funny but tough ride. Here I learned basic stuff about multimedia, animation, audio, video, photo, web design in general and I’ve learned how to use Adobe Creative software like Photoshop, Illustrator, Premiere, Flash, and Audition. We were taught about marketing, informatics, PHP, MySql, art and all the other aspects of multimedia. In the third grade, I went to the National Contest of Multimedia with two of my colleges and we won the first place.

Polytechnic of Varaždin, Varaždin, Croatia
— Multimedia, Design, and Application (2009 – 2011, DROP OUT)

I have messed up that but still, I’ve learned some cool stuff about graphic design, databases management, social philosophy, communication, video, the psychology of colors, photography, presentation techniques, how bad at math I am…

University North, Koprivnica, Croatia
— Media Design, bacc.art. (2015 – 2018)

So I came back to pursue an academic status and I have finally succeeded. I’ve learned a lot about art history, design principles, typography, grids, digital image, animation, scenery, creative process, print, photography, music production, 3D design, graphic design, colors, psychology, media etc.

University North, Koprivnica, Croatia
— Media Design, mag.art. (2018 – TBA)

I’m on the way to master degree at the moment.

 

WORKING EXPERIENCE

Čateks Plc., Čakovec, Croatia
— Graphic designer (2015 – present)

Čateks is the biggest and the oldest textile fabric company in eastern Europe with more than 143 years of existing. My work is focused on the visual presentation of the company. That includes creating catalogs, brochures, packages, taking photos, creating content for marketing and promotion, field test shots of new military camouflage patterns, maintaining the webshop, SEO, community management, and marketing.

Freelance jobs
— Freelancing (all the time back from high school days)

As a freelancer, I have done various jobs and most of them were oriented to the logo design and prints. These days I’m more into digital design and web development.

Occasionally I collaborate with other people on works like video production, game development, and photography.

Other jobs
— Newspapers delivery, jobs in facility and production, a firefighter on tourist camp, outdoor jobs (2011 – 2015)

As I drop out of college (2011) I was forced to work anywhere I can. That was the wildest, the most beautiful and the ugliest part of my life. A true rollercoaster. But it was an awesome experience. I mean, do you know any designer with forklift and firefight license? Well, now you know.
