My name is Novica Bozovic and I’m a freelance brand designer / illustrator with over ten years of professional experience. I was born in Niksic, the city of steel and beer. I spent the last five years living and working in Belgrade. At an early age I became interested in drawing. I spent a lot of time watching cartoons and trying to draw characters, motivated by an urge to make my own creations. I even made toys for myself, a process far more interesting for me than just getting toys that my parents bought.
During my high school years, I attended art classes mentored by artist Jovan Karadzic, and had several group exhibitions. Later on, my path led me to the Academy of Fine Arts, where I took painting as my major. I prepared for admission in the atelier of Mirko Toljic, whose work has greatly influenced me to become interested in graphic design. During my student days I developed my skills in that area, molding them further by working as a freelancer. My field of work was branding and logo design. After graduating from the Academy of Arts, I found another passion. I was interested in interior design. So I spent several years working as an interior designer in companies “Mi-Rai” Group and “Mat-Les”. It was an interesting experience, especially working on major projects such as: “Hotel Avala” and “Avala Casino”, “Porto Montenegro” and the interior the monastery Moraca library.
Over time, I realized that working for companies eats away a lot of time and to be honest, brings a lot of stress. Thus I returned to freelancing so I could be the master of my own time. From that point onward, all I can say is that I truly love the work I do. During my freelancing career I designed numerous logos, illustrations, and character designs for companies like Mighty Travel, Polaris Christian Church, Dancing Ninja, Future Fox, Spin Fox, Moon Horse, Castle King, Cool-Move-Mixer, Eleven | Eleven Realty, Fowler, Evil Puppy, etc.
