About Me

My name is Iva Tanacković and I'm a web designer based in Beograd, Serbia.

The road I've taken is a bit unorthodox. I started playing with FrontPage and Dreamweaver on a particularly boring highschool summer vacation in 2000 and I have learnt to code by hand writing in .rtf files on a Windows 3.1-powered computer, previewing it only when it gets online or on a non-prehistoric computer. Oh, I was using 5'25" disks for that, too.

I started doing web design professionally in early 2005 and my first big job was for the Serbian division of Lush, from November 2006 to May 2009. During this period of time, I was doing things that are normally done by a whole team of people - copywriting, editorial design, web design, community management, Internet marketing - and it has served as a good foundation.

Currently, I'm freelancing and permalancing for multiple clients. If you want to know more about the non-business side of me, do check out my personal blog. Be warned, I write a lot of poetry.
