Our caring for heritage is inconceivable without our clients – the supporters of the projects who have recognised the values of heritage, encouraged their initiation and persisted in their development, plus the numerous collaborators who have followed us in the creation of innovative and creative permanent exhibitions, interpretation centres, cultural routes, themed trails and playgrounds and numerous other heritage attractions. In mutually inspiring creative works we have collaborated with various top designers, artists, photographers, illustrators, writers of interpretation texts, scientists, editors and translators. Here we present how our associates and clients see that collaboration.
With the Muses as always with the Muses – inspirational. Lovely and culturally conscious projects, and the process of the work itself is pleasant and full of understanding. All in all, a rare combination of top professionalism and a relaxed and positive working atmosphere.
Muses are an exceptional team of young people who are a pleasure to work with. As a biologist, and at the same time a photographer and cameraman, I collaborated in an interpretation project of the natural values of our national parks and nature parks.
The pedantic and dedicated work, original and distinctive design, all coordinated and connected together to the smallest details has resulted in a special, top quality unique project by the Muses - the Underground Secrets of Paklenica - located in the bunkers and underground tunnels of the Velika Paklenica Canyon in the Paklenica National Park.
My collaboration with Muses has always been very pleasant and professional, and the high level of research and the quality of the preparation of the project task has especially impressed me. Along with that, they always respect the expertise and creativity of collaborators, which as a designer I appreciate greatly.
In the beginning there was the story of Dragana who made a crazily good thing in Rovinj (the House of Batana). Then when I went to Rovinj, I saw how one almost forgotten little boat turned into a symbol and how the life of the whole town began to play around it, not stopping within the walls of the museum, but opening new areas from the spacio cellar to the harbour. I wrote about it, and when a good story pulls you to follow the Muses, into their cause of ennobling Croatia, it is a pure pleasure. An invitation to work and play with them is a joy!
A mutual friend Joško connected me with the inspirational Muses, Dragana Lucija, Ivana, Mirna and Iva via the Internet. And as all good relationships start accidently, so did this one.
Muses are a real Croatian example of a creative and cultural community that with its creative work is moving boundaries. In collaborating with them, I enjoyed reading interesting texts about numerous Croatian cultural, geographical and historical sites, about towns, places, their customs and people… The texts that they create in conjunction with projects in culture, the arts and tourism are founded on their own research and are therefore a reliable source of information.
Muses approach all of their work very dedicatedly, passionately like artists and intuitively like a curious child. I wouldn’t call their projects work, because in each of them is woven so much more – each one of them has its own completeness, true value, spirit, and even love. What they start out to deal with they first of all research, get to know, ponder, fall in love with and then shape in their own way – intuitively, as only women know how to. In other words, they approach every problem in an unexpected, fresh and new way. Sometimes I ask myself how they think of all these ideas! However, this is the secret of their success.
If you are looking for creativity, forget everything else and call the Muses. They really do exist!
Always pioneering and inspirational, I have worked for Dragana and the Muses on several innovative and successful projects. Their energy and enthusiasm is infectious!
The Muses as an organisation and a team are a real rarity – highly educated, professional, well organised and agile, with a deep understanding and sensitivity for the creative process, above all they value a job well done. Collaboration with the Muses was a real discovery for us!
The Muses are inspirational, just as Greek mythology suggests. Anyone who has the luck to collaborate with them can testify to the unique combination of professionalism and enthusiasm, which this tireless team brings to each of their projects. The best partner you could wish for, projects which we can all be proud of.
Work with the Muses has a different dimension. Apart from being professional, skilled and creative, their creativity is interwoven with emotion and always develops into something more. In our joint project ‘Svijet Graševine’ (‘World of Graševina’) the Muses truly were our inspiration.
Work with the young and ‘different’ people from the company Muses and their collaborators additionally inspired me to prepare the ‘Medvedgrad’ project. Through numerous structured and at the same time creative workshops, the informal atmosphere, the great freedom of expression, full of humour, yet always with a high degree of professionalism, in the end with the cooperation of a large number of employees of the Medvednica Nature Park, together and painlessly we arrived at the set goal – a museum display in the Southern Tower, the design of which to date has received no other reaction but delight. We look forward to the coming application of the project, in relation to the beginning of the realisation of our very dear project in Medvednica Nature Park, as well as our continued cooperation with Muses.
Collaboration with Muses was, in equal measure, a challenge and a pleasure. It was interesting to work on the enrichment of the cultural offer of our country, I am grateful to them for that and the confidence shown.
