Ranko Blažina


Ranko Blažina is a graphic designer and the director of studio Snooze, in Samobor, Croatia; for over a decade Ranko has been developing innovative solutions for clients, to deliver a range of illustrations, websites and graphical products. Despite the fact that Ranko pursues the medium of digital art as a livelihood, he enjoys producing new concepts, entering them in a variety of contests and exhibitions.

Once I found Ranko Blažina’s entry for the 2011 – Desktopograpy Exhibition, there was little doubt in my mind as to what image I should use as the background, to best illustrate my website: The Faerie Realm of Celscendor. My only disappointment, is that Ranko gives no other title for his piece than “Second part” – Desktopography 2011; the very grace of the dryad slipping from her tree, and attending shadows, while reaching to the light…leaves little doubt as to the selfsame nature and life of the tree itself.

Ranko designed this piece for Desktopography’s exhibition, and the wallpaper is available for download at Desktopography.

In Ranko’s very own words, “Designers and developers spend about 90% of their waking life in front of a computer so the most appealing genre for a wallpaper would be one that has beautiful design mixed with the all important aspect of being outdoors.”

“What we see every day can affect our mood and state of mind, enhance your desktop with a wallpaper creation from Desktopography and feel the essence of nature and the outdoor existence on your computer. Bring tranquility to your desktop, feel the wilderness and give your background a breath of fresh air…my piece for this great pack!”
