CROATIAN MINISTRY OF JUSTICE VISUAL IDENTITY.
A lot of keywords related to legal activity in Croatian language start with the letter ‘p’. Pravica, pravda, postupak, proces, pravednost, parnica, pravosuđe, to name a few. I believe that this is a key feature of the Ministry of Justice Republic of Croatia in a regional context. To articulate this visually, I used the basis of our national visual identity - two red squares, and transformed them into the letter ‘p’. The result is a powerful communication unit that with only two elements creates a serious entity, and a distinctive tone of communication. This basic visual identity ensures a fairly simple further development of identities in the secondary means of communication.

FREE WOOD FURNITURE DESIGN.
When using wood as a material for furniture, there are support systems needed in form of crossbars necessary for its stability. Trying to clear furniture from crossbars, we came to a construction made with no classic legs coming from the corners, but combining two bars coming from two planes into one center, making the construction strong in the diagonal and the furniture free of construction extras that are hidden underneath the surface. The prototypes were made out of maple wood with a 20mm profile and were strong enough to be used in the household. The final products are a variety of chairs and tables made out of massive wood, with the same stable construction avoiding crossbars and classical corners.

SCHOOL SUPPLY - INDUSTRIAL DESIGN.
The pencil case and display is the product of children's everyday needs in the class room. It was necessary to create a possibility to have a better organizing system which would allow them to use the right pencils at the right time very easily. Pencils used for different subjects thrust into the holes which are different diameters for different thickness of pencils. This makes them easily available, the visibility is increased and the organization of the workspace and stationery. Also while opening the lid of the pencil box, there is a pencil sharpener with container and the pencil case is possible to hang as a wall display when used at home. The final form reminded of Swiss cheese, which was actually a convenient fact, because its fun and popular among children.

POSTGRADUATE STUDIES - CREATIVE THERAPY IDENTITY
A newly formed postgraduate study in the field of Creative Therapy needed a visual identity which represents both the creative and therapeutic side of two collaborating schools: the Academy of Arts and School of Medicine, University of Osijek, Croatia. The study offers four different programs which needed to word together as a trademark. Reduced geometric elements symbolically represent them: Art therapy as a stroke, Music therapy as piano keys, Dance and movement therapy as a curvy dynamic line and Drama therapy as the comedy/tragedy mask. The four elements exit the framework stressing the creative field of the study. The composition of the elements and the form of the frame resembles a human face, which further describes the treapeutic nature of the postgraduate study.

THE ANALOG PHOTOGRAPHY - YELLOW SERIES.
The Analog Jellow series of analog photography on slides shows different aspects of the interpretation of yellow. As a color it represents the sun, associated with joy and energy. But in the language it has a different angle which the photographs show inspired by the novel "The Catcher in the Rye". The main character Holden says he feels yellow: "I'm one of these very yellow guys." By "yellow," Holden means he does not like fighting. In fact he might take any route to avoid it. This comes about when Holden is talking about a guy who stole his gloves. Holden imagines starting a fight with him but he says he is “yellow” and would never actually do it.

HOT CONE HAIRDRYER DESIGN.
The idea behind the hairdryer design was to re-think the common "pistol" form household hairdryer, based upon his primary and main task - blowing out hot air in a controlled direction. Through its construction and form, except holding it in the hand, the cone shaped hairdryer is also possible to use on both horizontal and vertical planes while the user is not holding it. Multiple usage: 1. hand held operating - ergonomical grip; 2. on a horizontal plane - standing on a flat surface for drying nail polish, heating hands; 3. alternatevly on a vertical plane - in wall dryind - it is possible to dry hair when the dryer is on the wall stand for people who find it hard to hold their hand up for a longer time or for the “wind in the hair” effect or even to head up the bathroom; The developement, from scratch, of a device for drying hair resulted with a form that is nothing like the classic “pistol” form. It is a hairdryer with multi- ple handling possibilities and space saving. New design qualities make a ev- eryday household item attractive and not something hidden in a drawer but rather a sculpture that can be put on display in every room.
