Mane Radmanović is a visual artist and a graphic designer. He studied at the College of Fine and Applied Arts and at the University of Applied Arts in Belgrade.
Radmanović’s interests revolve around visual arts and experimental approaches to graphic design, as well as in education and numerous graphic-design workshops that he organises at festivals and conferences across Serbia. Next to design, Radmanović is active as a photographer and a member of the contemporary photography collective Belgrade Raw.
His graphic design practice spans more than two decades and includes diverse interests and projects, most notably in the field of independent culture and in collaboration with cultural institutions (galleries, museums, cultural centres). In 2018, at the regional competition for the best graphic design “Grifon”, he received recognition for his continuous authorial contribution to graphic design in the field of independent cultural scene and contemporary art in Serbia and in 2021 at Grifon competition he won the grand prize for the catalogue “U10: 3/6”. Mane considers projects such as RECULTURE to be very important and valuable, primarily for the sake of better mapping of the design scene of the Western Balkans, but also for the main beneficiaries of the projects – young, talented designers. Above all, they need such professional experience, which is essentially rare in the world of design. Their engagement is very delicately and thoroughly defined so that they have full experience – from working with relevant mentors in the field of graphic design, to the very outcome of the project. Also, projects such as RECULTURE are important for cultural institutions, because they actually show openness to cooperation and trust in the work of students, organization and projects like this.
