We can’t THANK YOU enough…

But we’re going to try.

Now that the sun has set on 2012, we want to take a moment to thank all of you for giving us the opportunity to work with you over this past eventful year. Our team — Tamar, Dragan, Lidija, Jerry, Simao, Aleksandar and Monique — enjoyed creating online communications and design concepts for you and your businesses. It is our pleasure to “design ideas” that capture the public’s attention and drive business in your direction.

We also especially want to thank Michala Smith and Jeremy Smith, two great young professionals whom we were lucky to have on our team roster. They’ve now gone on to exciting new ventures, and we wish them all the success in the world!

In 2012, Sitka Creations has had the privilege of working with a distinguished group of design, Web and PR clients. You each know who you are, but you might not know what excellent company you’re in! Some of our Social Media and other Design Studio clients are not listed here, in keeping with confidentiality agreements — but our other terrific clients are as follows:

To bring us all together more closely for our mutual benefit, we want to give you an opportunity to work with us again next year — and encourage your friends and associates to do the same. To this end, we are going to activate a Client Referral Program for 2013. It works like this:

1)   Kindly refer an associate of yours to us, and then

2)   If that new client signs a proposal with Sitka for work in excess of $500 during 2013, we will compensate you with a referral fee of $50.

We look forward to working with all of you in 2013. Here’s hoping you get to enjoy some time with family and friends this month, and then press on to a happy and prosperous 2013. Let’s do business!

All the best,

The Team at Sitka Creations

Belgrade, Serbia — One of the greatest quotes about design comes from David Craib, who said: “Design should never say, ‘Look at me.’ It should always say, ‘Look at this.’”

One of the most important regional creative festivals in Europe, Belgrade Design Week, starts next Monday. So, let’s look at it!

Running from June 4th to 10th, the theme of the seventh annual Belgrade Design Week (BDW) is Freedom2 (“freedom squared”). The core of the festival will be the three-day International Creative Conference. The conference will present all its programs under the roof of the renovated National Library of Serbia (NLS). By taking up residence at the NLS, Belgrade Design Week is helping to commemorate the 180th anniversary of this institution, which has so much significance for the preservation and celebration of Serbian national heritage.

The event will gather a slew of leading creative minds. Among many others, the participants include Spanish design star Hector Serrano, Portuguese architect Álvaro Siza Vieira, new Austrian and French design superstars Thomas Feichtner and Mathieu Lehanneur, and NLS interior designer Zoran Radojičić. Also gracing the festival will be team members from the Dutch agency 180 Amsterdam, the UK agency Fallon, Austrian architecture firm Querkraft, Slovenian studio Enota, and Croatian atelier 3LHD.

Belgrade Design Week will open with 100% Future Serbia, showcasing the work of the most renowned Serbian artists in more than 100 shop windows in Belgrade’s city center. This presentation will be followed by creative workshops and master classes, exhibitions, promotions, premieres, films and concerts.

“Design is an opportunity to continue telling the story, not just to sum everything up.” (Tate Linden.) Therefore, if you give this year’s BDW a chance, surely you will note down next year’s edition to pop up automatically on your 2013 cultural calendar!

The entire course of Belgrade Design Week will be broadcast live on what is arguably the most important design publication of the World Wide Web Portal, www.wallpaper.com For more information, log on to BDW’s official Web page: www.belgradedesignweek.com.

Belgrade, Serbia — Once again, for three days and nights, Belgrade will be playing host to the SHARE Conference. This year the manifestation will gather more than 2,000 activists, bloggers, engineers, programmers and artists from Serbia and internationally in order to exchange progressive ideas and knowledge in technology, Internet, music and new media. During the event, an intensive music program will be simultaneously organized in several well-selected clubs and alternative venues in town.

The Conference consists of two parts:
SHARE by Day — Lectures will be given by Dr. Ian Brown of the Oxford Internet Institute; Peter Sunde, The Pirate Bay founder; and Daniel Domscheit-Berg, a former spokesperson for WikiLeaks and founder of OpenLeaks — to mention only some of the most notable authors.
SHARE by Night — The music program will present world-class authors of innovative electronic and contemporary music, together with talent from the local club scene.

So, are you interested in Internet, new media and new technologies? Do you fancy contemporary electronic music? Would you like to SHARE?

If you’re not able to visit the capital of Serbia on 26 – 28 April, you can attend SHARE via Internet on the official website. Most of the videos will be available as soon as the conference is finished.
