/When we were little kids, there was a big lemon tree in our house. Placed in the huge flowerpot, on the long green carpet, just beside the window. We played all the time under that tree. Every year, it gave us a few small lemons./

CREATIVE LEMON is a design studio with great potential in branding, illustration, packaging and web design. Placed in Belgrade, Serbia, there was a chance to create a strong background of 20 years of advertising experience. After working at/with many local agencies and World Wide clients like telecommunication companies, banks, software, and computer companies, clients from food & drinks industry, tobacco companies, transportation, and construction engineering, the decision to focus on the several creative fields and use the potential in a better way, came naturally.

Finally, in March 2018, the studio started to work on several startup projects, create their image and follow them as they continue to grow. Along the way, it becomes more flexible and adaptable to the market requirements.
