We’d like to warmly welcome our newest Star Designer from Croatia! Please meet Ivan!
Our journey into the world of the amazing designers continues with another talented professional from Europe. Croatia seems to be the place where many either find creativity or where the creativity finds them.

1. Personal and professional life
Tell us about yourself
I’m Ivan, 25 years old – a youngster focused on building brand identities, living and working in Zagreb, Croatia. During the last few years, I’ve worked with some amazing clients, from individuals to the small and big companies. Besides the creative world, I love traveling, great food and having a great time with my family and girlfriend. And of course, football :)
Why did you want to become a designer?
If you wouldn’t have become a designer, what profession would you have chosen?
How have you grown as a designer over the years?
By building my brand (-ing agency), not only I’ve grown as a designer, but rather as a person as well. It helped me a lot to accept the failure, build grit, expand my creativity and new way of thinking. And of course, grow my design and business skills. For me, it’s CANI – as Tony Robbins would say – constant and never-ending improvement.
