Miami Beach Modern Art Deco

Art Deco, a distinctive style that gained popularity in the 1920s and 30s, is characterized by its geometric shapes and opulent finishes that exude luxury. Miami Beach is renowned for its Art Deco Architecture, primarily designed in the first half of the 20th century.

Djordje, a visual artist and creative director based in Miami Beach, is deeply passionate about this movement. While he likes the Art Deco style, he finds himself pondering why many people are content with merely “recycling” elements and graphics that were designed over a century ago. During that period, artists created Art Deco as a reflection of their everyday life, encompassing design, architecture, and products.

As a creative person, Djordje believes that Art Deco should pay homage to the past without appearing outdated. His approach involves seamlessly merging Miami Beach’s modern iconic visuals with Art Deco elements. For instance, he incorporates modern life guard stands, his beloved pets, and other inspiring elements into his artwork.

In pursuit of his vision, Djordje aspires to connect with other creatives who share his passion. Together, they can explore how Miami Beach Art Deco can be reimagined to reflect the essence of the 21st century, while preserving its timeless allure.

Branding & Creative director Djordje Milekic lives and works in Miami Beach. Originally from former Yugoslavia, Djordje has been living in Miami Beach since 2005. The projects he directed were exhibited and presented at The One Club, Art Directors Club NYC, AIGA National Design Center, NEXT Conference, AIGA Leadership Retreat, Belgrade Design Week, The Wolfsonian FIU, Museum of Contemporary Art, Belgrade, and more.

His works were featured in New York Times, Step, How, Print, ID, Graphis, Creativity, Communication Arts, The Art of Design, Graphic Agitation II, Colossal Design, and many other magazines and publications.
