After two years of work at the agency Brigada (B&Z sister company) in position of product designer, Vlatka Leskovar has been appointed Creative Director. Offices of Croatia Osiguranje insurance company and Addiko Bank express, AlpStories shop, offices of Infinum and Booking.com, are just some of the projects of this agency on which Leskovar worked. She also designed the Umamice chairs, which are today an independent product of Brigada, and were created during the design of Umami restaurant whose entire unique accessories were created by Leskovar and her team.
“Although my specialty is product design, what inspires me in Brigada is its integrated approach to space, where I was part of a larger team of professionals of different expertise, from sales and marketing to architecture, working to resolve some of the client’s problems, and where we know exactly why we set a strategy underpinning the design, and the objectives we want to achieve,” said Leskovar.
She has a master’s degree in industrial design at the School of Design at the Faculty of Architecture in Zagreb, where she was awarded the annual prize for her graduate thesis.
