Hello, I’m Jelena.



My name is Jelena Ristić. I was born in Belgrade (Serbia) and raised in Vevey (Switzerland). I take interest in analogue and digital alike, and I believe that great content relies not only on truthful and solid sources but also on insightful and meaningful storytelling. I love delving into the wondrous world of digital humanities to find new ways to create and curate new perspectives, while having fun in the process! I am also a keen traveller and have visited a few inspiring places, such as Iceland, Norway, and Antarctica. Purpose-driven, I abide by the KISS principle in my work, as complex does not have to rhyme with complicated.
