Tenth product designer of the 2018 season
Continuing with our new BB designers of the 2018 season, it is time to present our new product designer, Damla Teoman! Damla is a designer originally from Turkey, who works currently for IKEA in Croatia! Damla came to spend a creative week at the BIG BERRY Kolpa River Resort to design new BB items for us!
Damla came to the resort together with our other two BB designers, Tea Tadej and Marko Mikičić. In the beginning of their visit we got to share some special moments at BB lunch together with our previous designer group, Ena Priselec and Ivona Miloš! After sharing their thoughts and creativity between the BB designers, it was time to introduce Damla, Tea and Marko to BIG BERRY with a presentation of the brand and with a mural walk through the resort presenting the colorful BIG BERRY Art Colony houses.
During the week at BIG BERRY Damla got to know some of our BIG BERRY partners as we had delicious local food at Gostišče Veselič and at Domačija Šrajf, and later spent a wonderful evening at the ČRNfest music festival in Črnomelj, which was made possible by our partners Radio Odeon, Kolpa d.o.o. and Pivovarna Vizir!
At the resort, Damla got to enjoy many activities such as stand up paddling, canoeing and swimming. She also got to attend in our Photography Day, where our 12th BB Mastermind Šarūnas Kvietkus gave us a cyanotype workshop. We got to create amazing unique prints with plants from our herbal garden and berry plantation!
After spending five days at the BIG BERRY Kolpa River Resort, Damla had soaked in the surrounding nature and the inspirational atmosphere of our LUXURY OF FREEDOM. She designed awesome new BB items such as glass bottles for wine, water and milk, and improved the already existing BB element – the BB Coffee and Tea Table.
