About me

Tina Gorjanc is a Slovenian critical and speculative scenario designer who is recognized for her work that merges the practices of fashion and textile design with biotechnological procedures. Tina graduated from the course in 2012 and her graduation project granted her the A’ Silver Design Award in the Fashion, Textile and Garment category, consequently placing her as the 10th world’s leading designer to watch for in 2017/2018 in the same category. While carrying out the master course Material Futures course at Central Saint Martins she was awarded the Mullen Lowe Nova Award, a grant that is presented to 5 top students for their exceptional accomplishment. After graduation, the provoking nature of her project caught the attention of some of the biggest newspaper companies including The Guardian and New York Times as well as design and science-focused magazines such as Dezeen, Motherboard and Trend Tablet. Her exposure to the media placed her as one of the leading promoters of critical and speculative design as well as an active advocator of bioethics, bio-sustainability and bio-design. With just over half a year from opening her practice, she had a privilege to present her work on several events and exhibitions across the globe including Biofabricate, Most Contagious and London Design Festival. In May 2017, she has been award with the A’ Silver Design Award in Public Awareness, Voluntarism and Society Design Category for her current work. Today, Tina continues to work on her projects from London, where she tries to fulfil what she believes to be her responsibilities of a designer in our current society and therefore aiming to make meaningful contributions to progress on a variety of fields. Her work has been featured in the new TV series produced by the public Franco-German TV network ARTE in September 2017, which is dedicated to new emerging talents in the innovation design field. Tina is currently a facilitator for the Futures Studio, an interdisciplinary cross-course design initiative organized by the University of the Arts London. She is also developing commissions from several galleries and private organizations.
