Distinguished Projects

2007 – 2009      Lepša Strana Srbije/ The Brighter Side of Serbia 

As a member of the non-profit organization CENET, Belgrade I created, executed and managed the non-profit project “Lepša strana Srbije” / “The Brighter Side of Serbia.” The three-year long project gathered over a hundred gifted high school students from diverse, urban and rural parts of Serbia in creative summer camps focusing on (re)branding Serbia. The main objectives of the summer camps were to educate young people about Serbian arts and culture, and to coach them on how to use their creativity to produce witty and honest proposals for a fresh Serbian identity. 

Project Accomplishments

In December 2007, the project “Lepša strana Srbije” received an award from “Association of Serbian Advertising Experts” as the most distinguished non-profit project in the field of national branding. Participants of the summer camps continued networking thanks to their Facebook group, constantly contributing to creating a better image of Serbia.

2008  Regional Launch Campaign for Burn Energy Drink

As a copywriter with Publicis, LPT advertising agency, I developed copies and ideas for the ATL and BTL launch of The Coca-Cola Company’s Burn Energy Drink for Serbia and the Balkan region. The leading slogan I wrote for the campaign became a commonly used phrase in Serbian youngsters’ jargon. The campaign proved to be very successful and acknowledged by the Coca-Cola Company worldwide.
