NOBU’s CommunityA lot of creative and skilled individuals are involved in the creation of NOBU BAGS. Our aim is to broaden this community with designers and artists who will contribute their ideas for diverse and unique cover designs.
B. Sc. Visual Communications
Helena Marolt finished her studies at the Academy of Fine Arts in Ljubljana, majoring in graphic design. She’s an art director in Studio Mars, where she brought the NOBU project from idea to execution. The desire for unification of experience in graphic design with something useful and communicative has shaped the idea of a postman bag with removable, interchangeable flap. Creative freedom while designing NOBU flaps is her reward. Like a good book, dinner in good company or … flawlessly executed Kanku Dai kata :-)
Sc. Engineer in Graphic Techniques
Ana lives and works in Škofja Loka, Slovenia. She began to work on paper and cardboard design in her high school years, but later discovered the charms of Inkscape and Gimp that led her to the world of vectors and pixels. She is intensely involved with digital illustration and graphic design for about six years. Everyday she keeps developing her analog skills such as drawing, crochet, knitting and sewing. For her creative
approach she says it is enthusiastic and especially creative.
I’m from Ljubljana, and over past five years I’m living and working on the cloud in the idyllic Istrian village of Labor. I graduated in 2005 on Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Ljubljana, visual communication. My desire for an upgrade of knowledge in illustration, led me up to master degree at the same academy in September 2014. My cow Tinka helped me with it, and together we created a lovely picture book Tinka’s colorful day. I took my work as a hobby and I enjoy in it a lot.
Martina was born in Trieste, Italy but was adopted by Ljubljana during her studies of graphic design on the Faculty of Natural Sciences and Engineering. She loves autumn, warm colors, wood and a good pizza in the company of her friends. While writing her Master’s degree she became interested in biomimicry. In her work she enjoys finding the right idea for interpreting a message.

After finishing her career as a civil engineer she started to discover the world of art. Step by step and with a lot of respect she’s unveiling the fascinations of creating ceramics, graphics and sculptures that leave her enraptured again and again.

We listen, we ask, and above all, we create. We do what we believe in, not forgetting how to have fun along the way.
This privately owned trade mainly deals with sewing curtains. However, Mrs. Melita and her team are more than capable to take up any other sewing challenge. And they do it expertly, reliably and in time.
