BDW FOUNDER AT THE MAJOR DESIGN EVENT EXD13 LISBOA

EXD13 LISBOA (7 – 10 November)
BDW Founder, Jovan Jelovac, spoke at the major design event EXD13 LISBOA, in Lisbon, on 9.11.2013.

EXD is an international biennale dedicated to design, architecture and creativity; a forward-thinking platform that cultivates and analyses contemporary culture through discussion and reflection. It is a springboard for up-and-coming talent and experimentation in different formats, from exhibitions to urban interventions, debates and lectures. Focusing on people and ideas, the biennale’s program is designed to provide insight and incentive to both a specialized audience and the public at large, disseminating information and provoking debate.

One of the participants in this year’s debate was our very own Jovan Jelovac (http://www.experimentadesign.pt/2013/en/01-03-00-jovanjelovac.html), the founder of Belgrade Design Week. He spoke of the challenges and achievements regarding his pet project which became the biggest creative industries promoting event in the region. Tirelessly tracking down the “The Greatest Creative Minds of the 21st Century” and inviting them to participate in his innovative series of international design dialogues. Belgrade Design Week was born.

An architect by education, a designer by passion and profession, as one of the leading consultants for branding in Europe, Jelovac is a creative director and partner in Brand New World – brand architects firm. He has carried out various branding programs and campaigns for a range of high profile corporations, NGOs and governmental institutions in West and East Europe.

EXD13 was a showcase of a myriad of talented designers in the fields of architecture and urbanism, furniture, lighting, fashion, jewelry, accessories, type design, illustration, books and magazines design, etc. Take a look at the highlights of this extraordinary event:

My BDW began in Milan, having a crazy meeting with Jovan at the design library in ZONA TORTONA. 09:15 A short espresso with Mauricio Ribotti: "Are you sure you have a meeting with Jovan this time in the morning? It must be a mistake!" 09:40 a man with a small black suitcase enters the café: "Hi CARO!" both man hug. "Oh! Galit, you are also here?" We sit down and immediately start to talk "design”. After 3 espressos I know I have found my partner for the next revolution! Coming to BDW was wonderful, like meeting old friends. BDW is the most passionate conference, full of amazing designpeople that share impossible designdreams. I was honored to be a part of this group  - and would love to see you all again!
