About me
Akanksha is a freelance illustrator and a graphic designer who's currently looking for interesting creative projects to collaborate on. She is an alumni of Goldsmiths University of London where she did her Masters in Children's Literature: Children's Book Illustration. She also holds a BFA degree in Applied Arts where she studied graphic design and branding for over 4 years. Her versatile approach works to her advantage as it has helped her create a different visual style for every project of hers, each having its own visual appeal. Her work is colourful, narrative and detail-oriented.
