TRIO Sarajevo Postcards
Design group Trio Sarajevo (husband and wife Bojan and Dalida (Durakovic) Hadzihalilovic and collaborator Leila Mulabegovic Hatt), formed in 1985, was part of the Sarajevo generation which was raised on the punk culture and pop-art movements. Trio Sarajevo opted to remain in Sarajevo during the war in Bosnia, continuing to earn a living as commercial designers. This postcard redesigns the iconic Hollywood Sign overlooking Hollywood, Los Angeles, California, on Mount Lee. The “Sarajevo” version features the communication (TV) tower on Trebevic Mountain, southeast of Saravejo.
