About me

Tina Gorjanc is a researcher, designer and consultant specializing in material exploration, trend forecasting and speculative scenario development. She is most recognized for her work that merges the practices of speculative and critical product design with scientific procedures. Her creative practice has caught the attention of some of the biggest media companies as she has worked with established international institutions and organisations worldwide. ​ Tina has introduced pioneering approaches to client commissions, consultancy and the educational sector, by complimenting her future-focused approach through insights gained from her secondary role as a Visiting Practitioner at Londons’ Central Saint Martins - one of the leading creative educational institutions in the world.

Awards

2017

Silver A' Design Award Winner for Public Awareness, Volunteerism, and Society Design Category

A' Design Award & Competition

  • A' Design Award and Competition aims to highlight the excellent qualifications of best designs, design concepts and design oriented products worldwide in all creative disciplines and industries. The primary aim of the award is to create publicity, PR push and advertisement opportunities for design award winners while supporting the global design culture, creating incentives for entrants to come up with superior designs for a better future. A' Design Awards is a premier annual juried design competition that honours the best designers, architects, engineers, design studios, brands and design oriented companies worldwide to provide them publicity, fame and recognition. A' Design Award and Competitions are organised and awarded annually and internationally in a wide range of categories. Every year projects that focus on innovation, technology, design and creativity are awarded the A' Award. While realised projects find opportunities to get published, reach new markets and meet a wide range of buyers for their existing products, the organisation also helps the creative minds and startups to meet with the business people to realise their product ideas. The A' Design Award and Competition has a very well developed methodology for choosing the best designs using rigorous evaluative criteria, blind judging processes, score normalisation, cross matching and more, to reward only the best designers and firms that truly deserve special recognition. The Jury of the A' Design Award is composed of Academics, Professionals, Enterprise and Focus Group members and follow strict guidelines to provide a fair and ethical evaluation.
