Regarded as one of the most creative teams in Slovenia, Grupa Ee joins together graphic designers, video makers, illustrators, musicians, and other creative minds. They all share similar aesthetics and value a stimulating working process, their work is fresh, vivid, and even a bit provocative. The current team includes Damjan Ilić, Ivian Kan Mujezinović, Mina Žabnikar, and Žiga Testen, with the occasional participation of other graphic designers. Ajdin Bašić decided upon his own practice in 2010.

Work

Although members of the group are designing some of their projects individually, they benefit from working in a team through sharing their experience and views on design in general, as well as a studio space. Together they designed the corporate identity for the Glej Theatre and info-graphics for the 2010 Month of Design. With the group Sindikat they presented the project Work-in-progress at the Škuc Gallery, printing and binding their own artist's book on-site.

Their name is constantly present at the Biennial of Slovene Visual Communications and their work has been presented at numerous other exhibitions in Slovenia and abroad. Among them: Work from Slovenia in Brno (2008) and Zagreb (2009); Type Directors Club 55th Awards Exhibition in New York (2009). Through lectures they also presented themselves at the Jan van Eyck Academie in Maastricht (2009) and Casco, Office for Art, Design and Theory in Utrecht (2008).

Members
