Damjan Geber

CEO & Creative Director

A pioneer of functional retail design in Southeast Europe, Damjan creates stores for major regional and international clients. He relentlessly explores new ways of creating successful offices, stores and event interiors while strengthening Brigada’s team with the best experts and creatives. Damjan created Brigada as a training ground for interior designers, since the local schools don’t offer education in this particular field. He’s a sharp dresser and passionate cook who likes visiting the Americas every year to gather inspiration.

Marija Lukić

Head of Finance & Project Manager

Marija has accounting backgrounds in both agencies and retail. Besides crunching numbers, she manages project schedules and production. Outside of the office, she is an adrenaline junkie who enjoys playing all kinds of sports, as well as traveling, cooking and watching movies.

Zoja Ivanišević

Head of Development

Zoja is a cultural manager and art historian who loves business just as much as she does the creative process. After completing her graduate degree at Bocconi University, Zoja gained professional experience and project management skills while working at prominent Italian art institutions and companies in Venice, Milan, and Rome. Even though she appreciates Swiss precision at work, she is a passionate proponent of the Mediterranean lifestyle in her private life.

Kristina Volf

Creative Director & Product Designer

Kristina is a creative director and product designer. Before coming to Brigada, she was a part of Manufakturist design studio, where she created new product solutions and collections. She has worked as a professional designer in the field of product design, interior design, visual communication and illustration. Her favourite part of the process is thinking up creative concepts for successful spaces and products, and she enjoys working in a team. Besides design, Kristina loves jazz music, martial arts and illustration, which are her soul food.

Dominik Cergna

Head of Design

While studying in Padua, Italy, Dominik had the chance to collaborate with noted Italian companies and manufacturers. He is a proponent of fully customized product design, so he even designed some of the furniture in his own apartment. Dominik likes biking and translates his passion for traditional Mediterranean way of life into a brand of olive oil, made from handpicked olives from his family’s olive orchard in Central Istria.

Ena Tadej

Head of Architecture

Ena enjoys all the stages of project development, from drawing board to construction site, but her favorite part is thinking up a creative concept for a successful space. Her main inspiration is music, from Bowie to Queens of the Stone Age and Mozart’s Requiem. She’s a jazz-dancer who also enjoys silence of the deep sea while diving.

Petra Ladan

Architect & Project Manager

Petra’s favorite part of project development is choosing the right materials and textures. She likes to explore unusual and remote places, where she finds interesting details, materials, and textures which are later used as inspiration for her work. A fan of F. L. Wright, Petra explores new ways of connecting architecture with nature.

Mia Petričević

Architect & Project Manager

Mia earned her degree in architecture after studying at the University of Sarajevo. She is dedicated, persistent, and always seeking to learn new things and develop her creativity. Mia’s biggest inspiration, which pushes her to work towards the “architectural magic”, are emotions that customers feel when they enter a room which she helped create. To Mia, architecture is an integral part of human lives and she is extremely passionate about it. She is a film and theatre enthusiast also.

Dina Bartolić

Product Designer

Dina came to Brigada as an intern, while finishing her master’s degree in industrial design. Travelling, taking photos, observing different cultures and people’s reactions, gives her a new perspective. In design, she appreciates multifunctionality and likes to research new materials and technologies. A good organisation is the recipe for an extremely productive day, which she likes to spend in nature, while cooking, baking or sewing.

Petra Čovran

Product Designer

Petra is a product designer with a strong interest in developing strategies and creative concepts. Before joining our team, she worked as a lighting designer and in the R&D department of a furniture design company. Thanks to her previous experience, she has learned how inspiring light can be, and how important good organisation and communication are in the daily work and in the production process. Besides work, being in touch with nature makes up a large part of her everyday life, whether running, hiking, riding a bike or swimming.

We closely collaborate with experts from the following fields:

Behavioral Psychology
