Being a freelancer from scratch, in 2007 I founded a marketing and consulting agency, called Ecodesign, through which I cooperate with clients in the country and abroad.

– OK, SaÅ¡enjka, but what exactly did you do? – I have worked on a numerous editions as an illustrator and designer, and I have gained great experience in illustrating and graphic designing of children’s books and various print publications. I did a complete preparation for a large number of editions which entailed design, illustrations, desktop publishing, and prepress. I specialized in caricature portraits, making my caricatures a unique segment of my work. Also, I am a member of Association of Applied Art Artists and Designers of Vojvodina (UPIDIV) and Union of Cartoonists of Serbia (FECO). – Oh, ok then…
