I am Mojca Sfeir, a Slovenian Art Director and Graphic Designer, and you’ll be pleased to find a pronunciation clue here → Moytsa. I’ve lived and worked in Beirut, Berlin, and Hamburg, and am now happily settled in London.
Born in the 80’s in one of the last generations of Yugoslavia, I grew up in a charming little green town in the Slovenian mountains. As a kid sitting in my parents’ warehouse, I started exploring my creative nature as I watched them turn fabric into fashion.
A few years passed, and I followed their path, studying Fashion Design for a year, only to discover that my real passion lies down the hall, in the Graphic Design department.
Paper in hand, I worked in Editorial design for ‘Bonnier’ (the big Scandinavian publisher). I used my Press ID at every occasion I could to enter all the biggest advertising festivals and obsessively write about the field. Eight years later, I boarded a plane to Beirut – the (ex-) Paris of the Middle East. I got a job at ‘M&C Saatchi’, followed by ‘Interesting Times’, and that’s when the times got interesting indeed. I was now working in advertising, and I loved it.
But Berlin was calling! And I took the call. I lived in Germany for three years, worked in Berlin and Hamburg. Today I am an Art Director at McCann London, and I love every aspect of the job, from concept to design, carry a pencil and sketchbook everywhere, and can still handle a camera. I am holding a few awards, with an experience in graphic design, advertising, and digital design.
