Каллиграфия Елены Сенечич из Белграда, Сербия.
Елена по профессии графический дизайнер, и днём делает логотипы, дизайн полиграфии и прочий дизайн позволяющий зарабатывать на жизнь. Вечерами и ночами Елена превращается в иллюстраторе и каллиграфа.
В 2004 году она завершила обучение и получила «Master degree» по каллиграфии. А сейчас уже сама преподаёт каллиграфию в Белградской академии.
У Елены далеко не уличный стиль каллиграфии, но он интересен тем, что в нём много этнических славянских мотивов. Кириллическая каллиграфия более сложна в исполнении чем классическая латиница и при этом зачастую даёт не менее интересный результат чем экзотическая арабская или азиатская рукопись.

Другое увлечение Елены — фотография, и пожалуй что здесь она не менее успешна, поэтому настоятельно рекомендуем посетить её фликр.

I’m Jelena Senicic and I’m from Belgrade, Serbia. I’m graphic designer by day and illustrator/photographer by night. Graphic design pays my rent, and other staff (photography, typography, calligraphy and illustration) feeds my soul.

When I was a little girl, I wanted to be a fashion designer, after that photographer for National Geographic and after that truck driver. But when the time came for me to go to high school, I decided to go in art & design high school and be a graphic designer. In 2000. I finished Academy of applied arts in Belgrade so I got my first advertising job few days later. At the same time I begin my studies for a Master degree in Calligraphy and lettering and I finished it in 2004. Since than I worked in many agencies, BTL, ALT, publishing houses, freelance… I also came back to teach in my old high school. Last ten years in my life were very interesting.

Now, I’m working as an AD in one of those agencies, have my own projects like “Dizajnersi” or “Belgrade in my pocket”, live with my cat and Vili, ride my bicycle whenever I get time. Always taking pictures with everything – my phone, my Fuji, my Nikon. It is very important to shoot all the time. Black and white mostly.

I had my third exhibition last month and it was cool. It was 10th anniversary of my work; there was a lot of friends, mom & dad, TV… everybody but the cat. Cat stayed at home.

I can not say that I’m only one thing like “ok, I’m graphic designer”. I’m not. I like to mix everything. Like to draw over a photo, put some letters on it, get my hands black with ink on pastels. It’s nice to mix anything you can think of it. But photography is a special. It makes my mind clear. I don’t know what I will do for a next ten years, but I like to try something new. Somewhere new. Maybe some other country, some other people and cities. Who knows…
