Mark
Sven Soric was born in Sisak, Croatia in 1989. In 2008 he started studying architecture in Zagreb, and in 2015 he earned his master's degree.
        In 2012 he established This Town Needs Posters, a platform for analog and experimental printing together with Hrvoje Spudic. Their design is based on simple typographic compositions and the graphic qualities of the materials used for print. Since they have no formal education in printing, all the mistakes and imperfections are accepted and shown in the final results as a part of the process. They work with the independent cultural scene in Croatia and abroad, for institutions and clubs such as Mocvara, Zedno Uho, ZEZ, Klubvizija SC, Attack, among others.
        They were awarded for the project in Zagreb in 2014 and Belgrade in 2015. They lectured on SOS Design Festival in Sarajevo, Fluid Design Forum in Bar, DA festival in Zagreb, Visual Communication Design Studies in Split and Skopje Poster Festival. They actively hold workshops and have had exhibitions in Zagreb, Rijeka, Belgrade, Sisak, Skopje. In 2017 they had a five year retrospective exhibition at the Croatian Designers Association gallery.
        In his personal practice he designs books and publications for cultural institutions such as Sisak City Museum, City Gallery Striegl in Sisak, Krsto Hegedusic Gallery, Faculty of Architecture in Zagreb, Architecture Museum in Zagreb etc.
        He became a member of the Croatian Designers Association in the professional category in 2017, and as of 2018 he is officially a member of the Croatian Freelance Artists Association.
        In 2018 he was a resident at the Zentrum fur Kunst und Urbanistik in Berlin where he worked on a project in analog methods of archiving. While staying there he also held two workshops in print and self-publishing.
