About me

Hello, my name is Jakub Stępień aka Hakobo (born 1976 Łódź, Poland) I am one of the 50 most important poster artists in the world (according to John Foster, author of the book New Masters of Poster Design: Poster Design for the Next Century). It also feels great in visual identification, activities on the borderline of art and design, in fashion and, in general, utility graphics. I works with many cultural institutions in the country, including from the Museum of Art in Łódź, the Center for Contemporary Art Ujazdowski Castle, Poster Museum, Design Gallery BWA Wrocław, Zachęta National Art Gallery. Since 2001, I have been creating Hakobo Studio in which I work as an art director and graphic designer. Among my clients are: Andrzej Wajda, Netflix, Lodz Design Festival, Wyborowa, Vans Poland, Pogo Skateboarding, Universal Music Poland and others. I have been working at the Academy of Fine Arts in Łódź for five years and I teach at the Studio of Spatial Graphic Design and Poster, and in 2017 I received a PhD in the field of Fine Arts and Graphic Design.
