The design is dedicated to the Sušak Pupils Dorm, inspired by the place that I myself called home during my high school education at the School of Applied Arts (ŠPUR) in Rijeka. It was only natural and inevitable that I would undertake the redesign to bring freshness and youthful spirit to the space.My creative journey began by assembling a mosaic of elements that symbolize the city of Rijeka and Sušak.
The Rijeka skyscraper, cranes, clock, and sea motifs merged to create a unique composition that reflects the characteristics of the residence and its location. The primary color of orange, always present in Sušak, was retained, carrying a strong visual identity.
The project's visual identity encompasses many aspects, with the most prominent being the new logo. It exudes freshness and a youthful spirit befitting a student residence. Of course, I haven't forgotten about other design elements that will be used daily in the residence - business cards, memorandums, envelopes, and maps - each carefully crafted to complete the overall visual image.Photography, social media appearance, website design, and mobile applications have all been meticulously planned and defined, ensuring recognizability across all media channels.I take great pride in my creativity and dedication poured into creating a visual identity that breathes life into the residence, ensuring that every student feels a sense of belonging and inspiration.
