I'm a graphic designer based in Warsaw, focused mostly on creating visual storytelling with strong interest in print and paper. Beside working on commissioned projects, mainly cooperating with artists, magazines, publishers and institutions, I am exploring issues of visual culture, media and design in self-initiated projects.

I majored in Book Design at Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw, studied Graphic Design at KABK in The Hague, completed JKT (AKT before) typography course, several Warsaw Design Lab’s workshops, and now I am attending bookbinding masterclass.
