First Day of Summer 2003

Rain, Clouds, 18C in New York on the first day of summer :(

This time last year we were swimming in the Adriatic anticipating our trip to Turkey with mom and nana…ah…

Let’s celebrate though. We are going back for another round of adventures on August 1st :)))

back to back

Posle kratkog izleta u uzvrelom Njudzi, Lolek se vratio u prolećni laid back Vancouver. Nekoliko pročitanih delova "Constructing Accessible Web Sites" knjige i lagani dremež učinili su da nepunih 5 sati leta proleti brže nego očekivano.

Urban Decay

For the past few years, due to economic hardships, Belgrade, along with the whole county has undergone a sharp change from an urban city to a city that feels like a small-provincial town. One thing that reinforces this is the public transportation system, which to most cities, adds to the feel of a truly urban environment. In Belgrade, that feeling has been taken away.

Branding the future

Unfortunately, all six missed the chance to reflect new identities through the design. Well thought out concept and good design were scared off by handicapped fonts, unsatisfied faces, and creative restrictions—no sign of women, youth, or the 21st century. Only complete creative impotency. Continue reading »

Fractal Phonemes

This is a part of my MA project from 1998 at Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design in London. It is about finding a new editorial structure that mirrors the content of a text better than the codex book format does, or set with typefaces as they commonly look today.

The phonetic alphabet we use in western society today was developed at the same time as the euclidean geometry, around year 600 BC. Therefore it is easy to understand why it is built up by squares, circles and straight lines. Continue reading »

Emotions on the wall

A common criterion to guage a painting’s relative "success" is whether or not a viewer even remembers it when seeing it a second time. Among the paintings once again recognized are paintings by Miloš Stevanović.

Their simplicity, most striking in his faceless bodies, is an emotional episode, an unspoken truth, a burst of ever-ripe remembrance. At first glance melancholy, his themes gradually morphe into warm and subtle presentaions of life’s fragments. In all things presented it’s hard not to recognize oneself in an experience that belongs to the other. Continue reading »
