United in improving graphic industry in BiH
“We were united by the desire to try to refresh, educate and improve the BiH graphic industry. Each of us has been struggling with real problems in the graphics sector for over 10 years. In those years, we gained experience, went through many problems and found solutions to them.
Our goal is to connect people from the graphic sector in order to educate and exchange information. We want to use our experience and knowledge to help graphic artists in BiH. Through a series of trainings, workshops and seminars, we will try to connect domestic and foreign associations and answer certain questions. We believe that only talking about problems can lead to their solution, and thus to the improvement of business processes,” the Association commented.
