Marko Pavlović

Designer, (B.Des.) Industrial Design

I work as a independent product designer dedicated to delivering unique design solutions in a variety of industries with a particular interest in the realm of toys & puzzles.

I graduated from the University of Zagreb, Faculty of Architecture, School of Design. During my first year of studies I started working with toys and earned worldwide recognition for revolutionary OBLO™ spheres puzzle design which could be described as a cousin to the Rubik’s cube, but for preschoolers.

My new invention is a 3D puzzle called Logiq Tower™. With more than 22,000 possible solutions, this could very well be one of the most challenging brainteasers on the market.  Projects in the toy category helped me win numerous awards throughout Europe and the USA.
