For the last nine years I work as a structural packaging designer. I design and develop all kinds of packaging (from luxury, transport, to shelf,..) and stands, mostly from corrugated cardboard and paper (this includes ideation, 3d presentation, preparation of documentation, dielines, prototyping, preparation for printing and also graphics, but graphic is not my focus). I have an outstanding understanding of materials and manufacturing processes. I'm also a recipient of the Slovenian Oscar for Packaging 2018 and author of several articles published in Slovenian EOL magazine (EOL stands for packaging, environment and logistics).
My main focus is green packaging, use of recyclable materials, downsizing the volume, downsizing print, less use of glue, consequently reducing the burden on the environment and costs reduction with production. I completed my master's degree at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Ljubljana, Slovenija, in the field of industrial design. The master's thesis was a flexible transport box for bottles for at that time a London based company called Flaviar ltd., which was awarded with the Student Preseren Award of Academy of Fine Arts and Design (the highest University award for students).
