Aleksandar just graduated the Rietveld and has recently moved to Berlin. He’s an interesting designer and I know he hates the word. I admire his attitude towards design and art, though. This force gets him to go deep into whatever he does and makes it successful. He’s quite headstrong and strict about the decisions he has to make, but they eventually result into something radical that makes the work good and stand out. His website is his latest gem, I think.
Not only shows it his work, but his fascinations and older projects as well. I like that he makes no distinction between it all and just bluntly puts it online. It creates a chaotic first impression, but then turns out rather user-friendly and gives a good overview of his work and what kind of person Aleksandar actually is…
