From Communication Arts Magazine

"When Milton Glaser writes the preface to a book, and the introduction is by Steven Heller, you may well imagine that the work inside will be exemplary. And it is. Fist to Face documents the career of Mirko Ilić, an iconoclastic designer from the former Yugoslavia, who has produced a wide range of often-controversial work from political illustrations for such disparate clients as Rage Against the Machine to the film You’ve Got Mail. Along the way he rocked the establishment as an art director at the New York Times and Time magazine creating fresh, provocative design and as always, following his own drumbeat."

"Make Art to Drive Change" on Skillshare

I am proud to announce that my lecture on Skillshare, "Make Art to Drive Change" just surpassed a milestone of 2,000 students.


Poster "Nathan the Wise"

My new design of the poster for the Yugoslav Drama Theatre in Belgrade, a production of Nathan the Wise (original German title: Nathan der Weise), a play by Gotthold Ephraim Lessing written in 1779.

Nathan the Wise is a play set in Jerusalem during the Third Crusade, it describes how the wise Jewish merchant Nathan, the enlightened sultan Saladin, and the leader of the Templars, bridge their gaps between Judaism, Islam and Christianity. The major themes of the play are friendship, tolerance, relativism of God, and a rejection of miracles and a need for communication.

I decided for this season to use images of profiles. 
Cyrillic version of the poster.
