Luxury of freedom


Fourth product designer of the 2018 season

It is time to get to know our first product designer of this month! After our amazing fashion designers, Nika Ravnik, Tanja Pađan from KISS THE FUTURE and Jona Bednjanec, BIG BERRY Kolpa River Resort has the pleasure to introduce Jelena Necić from daskka!

Jelena arrived to the resort with her family on a sunny Monday morning and got a warm welcoming from the BB Team. She surprised us with an amazing gift – a gorgeous daskka serving board with blue and yellow pattern! Once Jelena was set in her BIG BERRY House, we took her around the resort on a mural walk to see the beautiful BB Art Colony murals. Later in the day, Nika, Tanja and Jona arrived from Ljubljana and we all had a cozy game evening on the terrace, the winner being awarded with a BIG BERRY massage!

On Tuesday it was time to get to know BIG BERRY! We started with a presentation about the brand and the BIG BERRY brand elements. After that, we headed to Podzemelj to have delicious local food for lunch at our BIG BERRY partner Gostišče Veselič. Content and with full stomach we drove back to the resort to enjoy the services of another partner: SUP boarding with Kolpa Adventures! In the evening we finished the great day all together at the terrace watching a football match.

The next day started with some creative time for designing before we were joined by one more product designer, Nataša Dolejši from Dolejši modni gumbi. We headed all together for lunch at another BIG BERRY partner Domačija Šrajf that served us with amazing home-made food from their own garden. With the help of our amazing host Sonja Škof, Jelena and Jona baked the first ever BB designer’s Pogača! After designing, enjoying local food and learning about traditional local bread, we ended the day again with sports as we cheered for our neighboring country Croatia on the football World Championship!

Thursday started with an inspiring visit to COF - coworking factory in Metlika. We were welcomed by Alenka Tomašić, the project manager of Project Creativewear and Project TCBL, who introduced us to the projects and the possibilities for designers to unite and cooperate. BIG BERRY design year works also as a platform to connect creative people and join their forces, and this day was all about sharing ideas! After COF, Nataša Dolejši introduced us all to her button company Dolejši modni gumbi and their new collections. It was truly an inspirational day!
