This art book is dedicated to my great-grandmother, it speaks about her (extra long and at times extra difficult) life and my memories of our times, spent together. It is formed as a visual letter to her. The work contains 126 pages of photos and photo collages, as well as written facts and thoughts. I created it as a final project for the BA studies in Prague.

f r e e ? lancers
'F r e e ? lancers' is a continuous project from Poligon Creative Centre aimed at presenting various professional challenges younger creators with a self-employed status experiences nowadays.
The project's content and visual language is deliberately relaxed, parodical and simplified with a purpose to attract public to almost unconsciously slip into freelancers' shoes to feel their pains and blisters and appreciate their valuable impact to society.

Café du Coin
A series of illustrations, created for a Brazilian coffee shop Café du Coin. The project was done in collaboration with Dima Strapchev.
“Živela Tobačna!” or “Viva Tobačna!” is an experiment which reveals, revives and reinterprets over 100 years of industrial heritage that defines the Tobacco Factory Ljubljana. The first phase of the project was to make a product line of new year gifts that supported the Poligon creative centre, which is based in the heart of the tobacco factory. The line of products consists of 100 limited edition calendars, gift certificates allowing people to utilize the Poligon coworking space, as well as beers and badges.
All of the images are of the exterior and interior of the Tobacco Factory and are composed in analogue photographic technique. The calendar, which can be also a collection of posters, includes a quote under each photo that was taken from the book of the rules given to Tobačna workers in 1893.

kgiff poster series
The alpine town of Kranjska Gora, the birthplace of the legendary Kekec, organised its 1st film festival in 2016. According to the client's wishes, the images for the posters originate from the Kekec story and film. The posters avoid stereotypical depictions of the protagonist and instead, in a fresh and humorous way, combine statements from the 1st film with images of three other recognisable characters. The rich possibilities to combine the posters differently answer the need to address a wide audience and festival programme, as the programme was divided into children's, documentary and competing films.
