About me

Hello! My name is Jana Sukenik but everybody calls me Fana(h) – the 'h' is added for a more luxurious appearance of my nickname. After five fun and hard working years at the Tomas Bata University in Zlin I gained my Master's degree in Graphic design. Thanks to that I almost feel like a superhero ready to save the world with my tools and skills. My process of creation could be described with one sentence: "Why do something simple when you can complicate it?" I like making my own books, games and any kind of beautiful packaging. My special powers as a superhero include layout, corporate identities and designing specifically for children. I've been freelancing regularly for a couple of years, but I've always wanted to test (and improve!) my skills abroad, to be lost in a big city and to accomplish my dreams, which include wearing pink sunglasses and catching every unicorn that I'll meet. I moved to London in 2014 and started my journey as digital graphic designer for Maille in Unilever. Things changed and now I am prepared to do something new, so Hello and nice to meet you!
