MOTH3R ® is a sustainable platform of Ivan Šantić, concept designer with experience in motion and industrial design


I am Hyper Island – Digital Media graduate, a digital creative business school with a consultancy side specializing in real-world industry training using digital technology. My internship had taken place at Native, a London company specialized in product and user experience design. I was born in Zagreb, Croatia. I am a member of HDDULUPUH and HDNP design associations.  I also have a B.A. in History – Studia Croatica.


In a search between conscious and subconscious, force and matter, logic or inner gutfeeling, I find a fine balance. I am systematical and I express myself on multiple levels and not just what is considered “cool”. As a case study of my creative process, you can feel my ideas through concepts, prototypes and user scenarios. I am familiar with tech, it’s terms and terminology, production, post, VFX, industrial, automotive design, UI or information architecture.


I have both industry and freelance experience. I am creative, specialized to work with Motion, 3D & VFX, but I am also used to work with other various media ranging from Photography, Graphic Design and Web Design. I have also managed various personal and companies projects. My work, media and choice of tools reflects a simple philosophy of clean, functional and effective visual communication, a part of unique product / brand experience.
