About me
Janaina Baxevani is a multidisciplinary communication designer. She holds an FdA in Fine Art from Central Saint Martins, a BA(Hons) in Fashion Promotion: Public Relations from London College of Fashion, an MA in Graphic Branding from the University of the Arts London, and an MPhil in Communication Design from the University of Westminster. She has worked for clients including Christie’s, Sotheby’s, Vogue, and Harper’s Bazaar, and her greatest expertise revolves around the worlds of art and exhibition design. Janaina designs for purpose and her design work attempts to tell stories and create meaningful experiences. She has worked for Halcyon Gallery, producing identities for exhibitions, client fine art volumes and promoting contemporary artists such as Andy Warhol, Dale Chihuly, Lorenzo Quinn and Bob Dylan. Her works are research driven, through intelligent enquiry and evaluation, they create a framework for a deeper insight into graphic design and its future development. Alongside her professional work, she is currently conducting research at the Royal College of Art. This project, entitled ‘The Storytelling of The Old Master Paintings in the 21st Century’, explores means of communicating historical significance through smells. With her research, Janaina aims to show the potential of communication design practice to contribute towards history of art education, preservation of heritage and curatorial practice. #communicationdesigner #exhibitiondesigner #museums #fineart #publishing #bookdesign #graphicdesign #curation #artdirection #galleries #auctionhouse #arthistory #branding #aestheticdesign #researcher #luxuryart #printdesign #bespoke #luxury #artdirector
