Mirko i Slavko

Some of my viewers complain that I don’t post enough Mirko. I am doing this to please you and I will even toss in some Slavko. For those of you who are not from former Yugoslavia have no idea what I am talking about. I am talking about the fictitious comic characters, Mirko and Slavko. It was a propaganda comic, aiming towards the youth, drawn by Desimir Žižović "Buin", that started comics in 1958 and ended in 1979.

Mirko and Slavko were two partisan couriers that fought against Germans during the Second World War. By the amount of Germans they killed in the comics, I have no idea why the war lasted so long.

You can read more about the comics here.

Novum Magazine Cover

Gebrauchsgraphik / Novum Magazine was first published in 1924 and is one of the oldest running graphic design magazines to date. For their 95th anniversary birthday Novum decided to ask 6 designers to reinterpret one of the 1,000 covers that have been published between 1924 and now. I was honored to be one of those designers. 

I chose issue number 2 from 1924. The theme of the issue was tobacco and design. That particular issue was full of very kitschy gold foil stamped, ‘tipped-in' labels. Which was in total contrast with the “George Grosz-like” whimsical cover.

Tolerance Project Inc. Logo by Milton Glaser

As you are probably aware for last two years I have been organizing the traveling Tolerance Poster Show. In two years there have been 42  exhibitions of the show within 22 countries. So far the show has been visited by over 20,000 people. Now I decided to become little be more legitimate and established Tolerance Project Inc. non profit organization.

As with every decent organization, I needed to have logo. Knowing how troubling it is to design a logo for your own company I decided to pass that burden to somebody else. I asked Milton Glaser to design the logo for me.

Here I am proudly presenting to you the logo for Tolerance Project Inc. by Milton Glaser.
