Some of my own work - Model (not to scale) 3D wooden letters with vinyl typography print.Brief - advertise a museum of circus that is coming to town.My idea was to create a 3D typographic sculpture of a circus ring in the middle of a city centre, so that people could sit on them and read all about what would be in the museum.Each letter is on a different topic, for example clowning, performing animals, freakshows etc and the copy ranges from short anecdotes to names of famous performers.
Enjoy!

BLOK4   |   http://blokcetiri.com

“Drinking hot tea is a daily ritual for millions of people. In warm and cooler climates tea seems to bring a sense of relaxation and comfort. In Croatia, which is, by tradition (and due to our geographic placement), a coffee drinking country, there are not many chances to get a healthy coffee alternative. And this is Just our cup of tea- tea-bag integrated tea cup. It enables us to have a quick, spil-free drink on the run, without messing around with a tea-bag. It is easy to use, clean and reusable. Every cup can be used two times, then discarded into the paper bin and recy­cled to find its new life in another paper form.”

BLOK 4 is a creative team comprised of Katarina, Keti and their external associate Tihana. We cover different design areas – from graphic (visual identity, publications, packaging, illustrations) and interactive (web design and interactive interface) to product (interior, furnishing) and inclusive design.

“Why be like everybody else? This question is not only the tagline for Crazy Uncle but a total brand philosophy. With this notion in mind, TAXI came up with the name, visual language and packaging for this newly launched culinary cocktail. Inspired by ‘Dandyism’, the Crazy Uncle packaging features a packet of rimmer that also doubles as a pocket square. Each flavour has a different pattern and is a homage to all the crazy uncles out there.”
