BIO 26

The sad stats behind Ljubljana design biennial identity

Each cheerful design application is a representation of unsettling data

BIO 26, the Biennial of Design in Ljubljana, Slovenia, just launched an open call for participation in the 26th edition, titled Common Knowledge. The biennial will take on one of the greatest challenges of our time: information. Concerned with the widespread crisis in information, BIO 26 seeks to harvest the best ideas that explore ways to creatively take charge and react to it, as well as to propose experiments and present alternatives to the ways we currently deal with information and knowledge.

Alja Horvat

Alja Horvat is a talented illustrator, based in Ljubljana, Slovenia. Only at the age of 21, still a graphic design student at the Faculty of Natural Sciences and Engineering, she already has a clear, unique creative vision and a flourishing career as a graphic designer. Today we decided that instead of conducting a traditional interview with Alja, we would highlight a few of our favorite quotes from our conversation and let her work speak for itself.
