Published by Leonardo Calcagno

Who are you

 I’m Rade Tepavcevic, student of the Academy of Arts in Novi Sad, Serbia..

Your current job : 


In which city are you located? 

 My current location is Novi Sad.

A word to define what kind of worker you are : 


What tools are essential to your life (app, software, etc..) 

 Since I am a painter those are paints, brushes and canvas. I also do illustrations and I use Photoshop.

What does your office space look like? 

My office space is the Academy of Arts, we can use it’s premises freely, so I could say that is my workspace. Illustrations, I do at my apartment. I usually carry my graphic table and lap top with me, so I work whenever I have an opportunity.

What kind of music do you listen when you are working ? Usually it is something that gives me energy. I enjoy listening to Azra, it is a rock band from ex-Yugoslavia.

Do you have a way to organize your day to maximize your work ? I was never particularly good in organizing my day, but it’s important to finish everything in time even if it means to work late at night.

What tips would you give to improve productivity ? That is a hard question. ☺ I think it depends entirely on the theme of our work. If it is something that we like and we are interested in, then we enjoy in it and that improves our productivity.

You’re better than your colleagues to : It wouldn’t be nice to say that I’m better than my colleagues, we are all different, we have different interests. What I can say is that I’m in advantage because I finished Design school, and I have more experience in digital media.

What is the best advice anyone has given you ? One of the best advises I’ve got, is to get out of the comfort zone and be exposed to unknown situations. That can get you to unexpectedly good results.

What is your best tip for saving time ? Wake up early, work every day if you are not in the best mood.

What is your routine start and end of the day ? My day consists of my student duties. From 9am to 6pm I am with my class, after that I finish my illustrations. Sometimes I watch movies, but usually I fall asleep because of tiredness.

Aside from your computer and your phone, what gadget can you not you go without?

My graphic table and camera.
