About me

9 years of experience in graphic design and illustration

Hi! I’m Ajda, a graphic designer and illustrator from Maribor, Slovenia.

I’m focused on web design, user interfaces and illustration. Observing, analysing and interpreting everything in life make me have a clear vision of the product I want to create. Everything is done precisely and spiced up with my positive, eye-catching style. I’m inspired by characters, places, ocean biology, fashion, architectural design and amazing people.

History

I’ve gained many freelancing experiences in the design industry while studying Interactive graphic design (Media communications) on Faculty of electrical engineering and computer science in Maribor, Slovenia. At the time I was drawing illustrations for magazines FHM Slovenia, FHM Croatia and AutoBild Slovenia and also cooperating with creative agency Oranža on projects for Pošta Slovenije, Dravske elektrarne and others.

My family has always been amazingly creative and connected to modern technology, so I am now a proud part of team GRECO d.o.o., a software company that was established by my father 20 years ago. We’ve expanded our experteese to graphic design and now offer a full range of print and web based communications.
