"Inspired by Stefan Sagmeister’s project "Things I Have Learned" and the many professional and personal experiences and turmoil in the first year since my graduation from the Zagreb School of Design I created a series of minimalist typographic posters illustrating the simple maxims and thoughts I had come to realise.
My first personal exhibition, featuring the posters, was opened on the 24th of January at the Boonika Gallery in Zagreb. The following are the posters, the exhibition visuals and images from the making-of.”

For the first couple years that you’re making stuff, what you’re making isn’t so good - It’s not that great, it’s trying to be good; it has ambition to be good. But it’s not quite that good. But your taste: the thing that got you into the game, is still killer. And your taste is good enough that you can tell that what you’re making, is kind of a disappointment to you. A LOT of people never get past that phase - a lot of people, at that point, they quit.
And the thing I’d like to say, with all my heart, is that most everybody I know, who does interesting, creative work, they went through a phase of YEARS where they had really good taste - they could tell what they were making wasn’t as good as they wanted it to be - they knew it fell short. It didn’t have that special thing that we all want it to have. The thing I’d say to you is, EVERYBODY goes through that…it’s totally normal. The most important possible thing you could do, is do A LOT of work - do a huge volume of work.
Put yourself on a deadline, so that every week or every month you know that you’re going to finish one story. Because it’s only by actually going through a volume of work that you’ll actually catch up and close that gap, and the work you’re making will be as good as your ambitions. It’s going to take a while and you’re going to have to fight your way through that."
