I had the privilege to interview the talented graphic designer Mladen Jankovic, who owns a design studio in Belgrade. He’s only 22 years old and has an entrepreneurial and creative spirit. Read the interview to find out more about his work and get in touch with him if you want to enhance your visual identity.
Tell us about yourself and your first graphic design steps?
I’m Mladen, I’m coming from a small Country on the Balkans called Serbia. Actually, I’m coming from two small countries from the Balkans Serbia & Bulgaria because my mother is Bulgarian. I’m 22 years old and I love designing logos and brand identities. I started to learn Adobe print package when I was in high school at the age of 17 I think. My first touch with graphic design was when I started creating T-shirt designs in Photoshop and then I fell in love with Illustrator and started creating logos.
Who has inspired you in your life and why?
I have no idols honestly, I think that all of us are on this planet for a reason that is specifically given to us and I don’t support “walking in other man’s shoes”. My advice to the readers is to not follow anyone’s lifestyle or expectations because then you will be just “wannabe”. Take care of your loved ones and try to be a better person every day, that’s the formula, you don’t need role models.
What is your greatest achievement so far?
Moving from freelancer to Setting up my design studio, located in Belgrade, on solid feet. Looking forward to becoming the best design studio in Serbia for start, and work with talented young designers.
