DREXEL UNIVERSITY

Luka is completing his senior year studying Graphic Design with a minor in Product Design. He feels happy in life as long as he is being creative and collaborating with peers who inspire him, making graphic design the perfect field to explore. His most exciting work has been through freelancing where he has honed his skills in empathetic design, research, and building relationships with clients. Last summer as part of his Drexel Co-op experience, Luka had the opportunity to join CS Studio, a Paris-based design team that creates work for Contentsquare offices in Paris, London, NYC, and Tel Aviv. Despite working remotely due to Covid-19, Luka felt extremely lucky to work with a French-speaking team that challenged him in many ways as he navigated communication across the world while learning new techniques in branding, illustration, and animation. Luka has recently joined NYC start-up Apply stickers as a motion designer and looks forward to his continued growth as a professional designer. WHERE WHERE YOU BORN AND WHERE DO YOU LIVE NOW?

HAVE THE CHALLENGES OF 2020 CHANGED HOW YOU THINK ABOUT GRAPHIC DESIGN AND DESIGNERS?

It has become clear, now more than ever, that design must be used as a tool to support the work towards social, economic, climate, and health justice. Ethical design shouldn’t need to be applauded, it should be expected.
