My name is Joanna Kozak and I am a graphic designer, writer and visual artist. My on-going journey through art and design practice helped me to ascertain my primary conviction as an artist and a designer – that is, quoting Susan Sontag: What is important now is to recover our senses. We must learn to see more, to hear more, to feel more. I work across a wide range of media; from photography, film and animation through digital to traditional drawing and printmaking, with a focus on branding, editorial design and digital design (filmmaking, design for web). I completed 3 years of the 5-year study programme of Integrated Master's degree in Graphics at Jan Matejko Academy of Fine Arts in Kraków, Poland, with a qualification equivalent to the BA level. In October 2014 I started the MA Graphic Design Communication course at Chelsea College of Arts in London. It was a 1-year course with a strong emphasis on a research led practice and a self-directed design process. In my MA project entitled East meets West, I discussed the national identity crisis and mass migration phenomenon taking place in Poland and examined the notion of invisible labour as a consequence of neoliberalism and austerity. In October 2015 I have been offered a design placement (3 days a week) at the Studio objectif in Elephant&Castle, London (http://objectif.co.uk). Studio objectif is a graphic design practice specialising in exhibition design, visitor experience and book design. The position requires an in-depth knowledge of the design software (Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator) and a comprehensive understanding of typography and design standards, including the principals of designing for web. As a part of the design team, I gained a considerable experience of working on the community projects and collaborating with cultural and educational organisations. From May 2014 to September 2014 I worked as a Head of Press and Communication at Rowing Projects, a contemporary art gallery in Kentish Town (http://rowingprojects.com/), with main responsibilities including: marketing & research and implementing improvements to visual identity of Rowing in collaboration with official designer An Endless Supply (anendlesssuply.co.uk). I demonstrated my abilities to produce high-quality PR materials using the Adobe Creative Suite software (InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop, Acrobat, Flash). As a Graphic Designer in the Goniec Litewski, a Polish-Lithuanian newspaper (May 2013 – November 2013), I was responsible for magazine layout development. Being a part of a small and busy team demanded professional approach to time, costs and deadlines. I am truly passionate about my work and consider myself as a highly motivated, creative, hard-working and organised person, with a keen eye for detail.

MA Graphic Design Communication at the Chelsea College of Art and Design, University of the Arts London is a 1-year course with a strong emphasis on a research led practice and a multidisciplinary approach towards various aspects of design. In my MA project entitled East meets West, I discussed the national identity crisis and mass migration phenomenon taking place in Poland and examined the notion of invisible labour as a consequence of neoliberalism and austerity. The piece presented during the MA Final Show in September 2015 was a multimedia installation, consisting of objects, video (stop-motion animation) and sound.
