Filburg wasn’t born yesterday. In different forms it’s been around for two decades. Before Filburg there was Fiktiv, design and development studio based in Zagreb and Los Angeles. We’ve built our experience on the products such as ShoeBeDo, a lifestyle footwear retail chain which got from zero to a market leader, Croatian Audiovisual Centre, the central point for Croatian cinematography, Black Diamond Ventures, American venture fund with a pedigree, cult musical project such as Kontrapunkt and Compost Records, the renaissance of Adriatic festivals with The Garden Festival as well as by working on presentations of Penezić & Rogina arhitects on Venice Biennials. Our people have produced the biggest Croatian music festival, circled the world with the startup Loccie but also executed quality long-term projects for the local government. We are not big but we are worthy. Our work is appreciated by the Art Directors Club New York, UK Sign Design Society and leading professional publications, but we care about our clients’ results the most. By providing creative insights and design, we help brands reimagine their identity, develop new products and improve their business.
No fooling around with deadlines.
Smart is beautiful.
Your results = our results.
Working long-term, not putting out fires.
Forget “I like it – I don’t like it”.
We do only what you really need.
Medium is just a platform for ideas.
