This Poster Monday spot belongs to Stefan Mijić for designing the poster entitled “Don’t Kill my Creativity”. Stefan Mijić is a Bosnian designer born in Banja Luka. He is a fourth year student at University of Banja Luka, Academy of Arts, Graphic Design Department in Bosnia and Herzegovina. His work is based on ecological and political posters, commercial design and intermedia. Besides local exhibitions and rewards, he was part of The Triennial Ekoplagát´17 – the international exhibition and contest in Žilina, Slovak Republic and won second place in the Western Balkans Fund logo comptetition, an organization based on six governments of the Western Balkans. Also, his poster will be part of a big exhibition “1917-2017” in Berlin and Prague.
Today’s poster was originally designed as a proposal for “Escucha Mi Voz” International Poster Contest For Children’s Rights. The concept story represents real situations, uniting a fight against totalitarianism and for kids rights, in a place where they are the most endangered. The main question is about consequences which would inevitably happen to a child and probably to his family. This innocent act, children’s drawing, fun and games, could bring forth terrible consequences. “As an artist, I feel obligated to speak against it!” Stefan tells us. For the production and craft process Stefan had help from his three year old neighbor Lena Aleksić. “I first gave her the picture and marking pens, then told her I have a task to make this boring guy happier and in a few minutes she did an incredible job. My wish in the first place was to bring emotions, because my vision of graphic design is pure emotion and pure idea.” says Stefan.
