Marijana Orsolic-Orsho is a Serbian freelance illustrator, animator, type designer, and friend of mine. I really like her style, so I totally recommend checking her work out. She’s been featured in a lot of publications (Curvy, Semi Permanent 2010), and also participated in DMY Convection Design at the Berlin Festival.
Aside from creating startlingly original looking hoodies and tees, fashion label Carrot Clothing also has an interesting story to tell. The label was founded in Serbia, where the owner, Alex, ‘in an effort to uplift lagging spirits and voice personal concerns about freedom, began printing t-shirts featuring unmuted anti-war messages for family and friends’. This landed him in jail and at the mercy of unforgiving local authorities for spreading allegedly ‘terrorist’ policies. Since then, he has ‘joined forces with skateboarders, street artists, and other creative minds to establish Carrot Clothing, a brand whose essence is based upon the family-like relationships between global art, skate, and street communities’.
