Monika Vodopija

Monika Vodopija is a third year undergraduate student of visual communications at the School of Design in Zagreb. She participated in the Exhibition of Croatian Design 1718 and at this year’s Zagreb Design Week she will be presenting a wall calendar specially designed for the Ginger Sushi restaurant in Zagreb. The calendar is inspired by Japan and each month represents one type of sushi through an illustration accompanied by a recipe, therefore informing users not only about the different types of sushi, but also how to prepare it for themselves. Even the packaging of the calendar looks like a sushi roll – it’s form resembles that of a sushi maker or a rolled nori algae in a characteristic black color with the makizushi (the most famous type of sushi) illustration on the lids.
