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:

OUR BLOG

The Belgrade Design Week was the best design conference I have ever enjoyed – the specific spirit of the city in a kind of in between status, the rough tension which can still be felt ten years after the bombs, the pride and the looking for new orientation especially in the young generation – all this is giving the BDW a special flair far away from the current events of the global design circus. In addition the enthusiastic organizational team trying hardly but unsuccessfully to keep the program along the schedules, the informal exchange between the international speakers, the loss of any discipline, the parties on the river … what ever and how ever the interrelations between these aspects are working – it makes the BDW an unique, likeable, inspiring and productive event, I will never forget.
