Vizuarna/Polonca Peterca CV 2010

  1. 1. Polonca Peterca BA Strategic Designer Curriculum Vitae Ljubljana, April 2010
  2. 2. Polonca Peterca “I’m curious, and as long as I discover new things in life, and life continues to surprise me, I feel alive and I can be creative.” As a visual communication designer, I believe that designing is about life and people. My work involves putting form and content together, and there are an infinite number of ways to achieve this. And yet there is only one end result to aim for: simplicity. That doesn’t mean it is always an easy process. In fact, achieving simplicity can sometimes be quite complex. I first worked as a designer during my studies, when I was commissioned to work on some small projects. After graduating from the Academy of Fine Arts in Ljubljana, I then continued with my postgraduate studies in Germany and Slovakia, which not only gave me some great design skills, I also gained valuable life experience. Over the years, as my experience has grown, the projects I’ve worked on have too. I have worked in lots of different fields, including designing print material, web pages, illustrations and animations. And I am still learning – to achieve the best results for our clients, I think it’s crucial I keep upgrading my knowledge. At university, my graduation thesis consisted of a classic animated movie – it was actually a children’s cartoon. I animated Boris A. Novak’s song, ‘How things grow’ and won an award for my work. However, the biggest reward for me was seeing the honest and positive response of the children who watched it. This is just one of many recognitions and awards I’ve received in Slovenia and abroad for my design and animations. When I’m not designing, I like to live my life to the full. I’m curious and open to new things. It helps me stay creative.
