Discover the interview of Damir Midzic, located in Bihac, Bosnia and Herzegovina.

How did you become designer?

Graphic design was something that fascinated me from my childhood, but then, of course, I did not know the meaning of it. I graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Sarajevo. My professors Amra Zulfikapasic and Bojan Hadzihalilovic, both famous and world recognized designers, made a great impact on my education and training. I was also fascinated by the principles of Bauhaus, a famous German design school. But actually, I became designer many years after I finished my formal design education, after a lot of practice and further development of my design skills.

How would you define your vision of design, your style?

“Design” is conceptual thinking in the first place, followed by effective communication between the sender and receiver of the product or message. In today’s world we are overwhelmed with images that make people more resistant to their effect. The challenge is how to find new ways to make your design stand out. I try to keep my style graphically clean and minimalist wherever possible. My favorite graphic design discipline is typography (many find it the hardest one) so I always spend some extra time polishing it.

For the future, what are your professional projects?

While keeping my clients satisfied, I hope to design and publish a coffee table book on my hometown Bihac. Recently I’m also attracted to typography in interiors and signage design. I am looking forward to executing more projects in that area.

What do you like the most in your job?

I like the factor of creativity. The more design experience you have, the more pictures, symbols and concepts you archive in your head. Then you put out the certain items from your archive and combine it in a new way. You never get bored with this job.
