Pretty neat dig if you ask us

Packaging 360° by Croatian Designers Association

HDD has gathered a most awarded group of designers and creatives — Sean Poropat (Cofounder & Creative Director, Studio Sonda), Anselmo Tumpić (Creative Director and Cofounder, Studio Tumpić/Prenc) and Izvorka Jurić (Creative & Art Director, Dig studio) — to talk about the beautifully crafted story of the return of the packaging.

Sven Sorić (President of the Croatian Designers Association) led the discussion and opened important topics such as: What is the impact of packaging design on how products position themselves in the market and on shelves? Does top-notch design or redesign affect increased demand, and ultimately, in what way does design thinking help the client in the broader picture?

Exceeding Expectations with Top Speakers and Networking Bliss

This year’s Days of Communication festival once again exceeded our expectations. Top-notch speakers and world-renowned names, such as Shiva Jervis, Dan Ariely, Eugene Cheong, Brian Collins, and many others. Exciting panel discussions on various topics within the broader field, and fun and chill zones for networking and socializing.
