Colombian/American Intern In Brigada
Gabriel Manrique is our new intern who comes from the University of Cincinnati in Ohio. He grew up in Chicago in a large Colombian family. At the University of Cincinnati, he studies industrial design. He likes to incorporate his interest in history and cultures, especially his Latin American roots, into his designs whenever possible. His internship at Brigada is his third internship and first internship in Europe. He has enjoyed his time at Brigada as he feels he can see the combination of the many creative fields working in tandem.
The highlight of his time in Zagreb so far has been the World Cup experience. Being a fan of football, the stars aligned when Croatia made a run to the final and he was able to experience the football fever firsthand. Growing up in the fast-paced culture of the United States, he says that he enjoys the relaxed culture of Zagreb. Gabriel looks forward to further exploring Croatia, its coastline and other Balkan countries in his remaining time.
