Many years ago, Gregor Žakelj got started in design by focusing on web and motion design. But despite a promising trajectory as a young creative and art director, his growing passion for illustration, typography and graphics design drew him out of the commercial agency world.
12 years ago, Gregor began his own design studio: Visual Brain Gravity. He was quickly named Young Creative of the Year and represented Slovenia in Cannes. Since then, he has received more than 70 international and domestic design awards, including the Volvo Design Award, SOF, Brumen, European Design Award, Golden Drum, … the list goes on and on!
In addition to occasional lectures, his personal exhibitions and brand consulting, Gregor has also been a member of numerous juries, and has been selected as one of 10 celebrated creatives by the Art Directors Club of Europe (ADCE).
Gregor is currently developing branding for a variety of industries, as he has discovered the importance of studio side-projects with his own brands, focusing on his belief that good design is for good clients. He is also a host of Creative Mornings Ljubljana (a global organization creating regular networking and learning opportunities for creatives in more than 150 cities, including Oslo) and writes regular columns on creativity.
The event is free and does not require pre-registration, but Verdensteateret is not a large venue, so come early to avoid missing out!
