Every designer has a story behind her or his fantastic artistic works and accomplishments. But, you will agree with me that we can always have a look and admire their work which really deserves a lot of attention, but somehow during these hot summer days we prefer to read and watch something more ‘lighter’ and easy to absorb. Sooo, I asked Branka and Simon, founders and owners of the Illeconcept branding & design studio to answer some ‘easy going’ questions and I have to admit that I discovered so many things that I didn’t knew about them even if I know them for quite a long time and that their answers are very interesting. They show us what their beliefs are, what is their life motto and what are their dreams and motivation in life. First of all, let’s have a look at some of the pictures from their travels that they shared with all of us.
