"Pij! — a traditional pottery for contemporary use. A self-initiated design & research project that explores the use of bukaleta, a traditional Croatian pottery jug from the regions of Kvarner & Istria. It is a contemporary adaptation of the traditional design."

Studio8585 is a Croatian design studio which develops bespoke visual identities, responsive websites and other associated materials including stationery, books, posters, brochures and signage for international and local clients. 

They believe that good design produces effective and meaningful outcomes, adds value & inspires. That is why their approach is conceptual, focused on the process and based on close collaboration with their clients. They listen, ask questions and research, often challenging the brief in a search of the simple and practical solutions that are versatile and human. Equal competence across print and screen and their wide collaborative network enables them to handle both small and large scale projects that cover several creative disciplines. Agile and effective, small but ambitious, they are driven by rationality and devoted to delivering crafted, elegant & functional visual experiences with expressive bite.

The School of Life   |   http://theschooloflife.com/shop

The School of Life is devoted to developing emotional intelligence through the help of culture. We address such issues as how to find fulfilling work, how to master the art of relationships, how to understand one’s past, how to achieve calm and how better to understand, and where necessary change, the world.

The School of Life is a place to step back and think intelligently about central emotional concerns. You will never be cornered by dogma, but we will direct you towards a variety of ideas from the humanities – from philosophy to literature, psychology to the visual arts – ideas that will exercise, stimulate and expand your mind. You will meet other curious, sociable and open-minded people in an atmosphere of exploration and enjoyment.
