About me
Graphic and Media Design Graduate | Illustrator | Printmaker | Cat Enthusiast I like to make things that matter, I'm interested in social change and art activism. I also like to experiment with different techniques and I am in love with print - whether it's digital printing or hand-printing linocuts and getting my hands dirty with ink - print's not dead!
Projects
  • The Coffee Gang stickers
    The Coffee Gang stickersRecently I bought an old Zebra label printer with an aim to turn it into a sticker printer and now making stickers is my new favourite thing. The model that I have has been discontinued in 2012 and instead of using regular ink, it prints with ink ribbons, limiting the colour palette and the process resembles that of screen printing or risograph - you can only print one layer of colour at a time and gradients are achieved by using halftones.

All designs have been printed by hand on recycled paper.

The posters are a critical response to the insulting language that the government and the media are using towards the community. The QR codes take you to the website, where you can read more about certain quotes, see Polish LGBT+ youth statements and access printable files to make your own posters. The campaign would first only use the portraits in order to engage the audience, then after
  • Girls to the Front #10 'Conflict'
    Girls to the Front #10 'Conflict'A personal illustration done for Girls To The Front's #10 zine issue Conflict. Girls To The Front is a feminist, queer collective endorsing the DIY zine culture in Poland. The illustration, prompted by the zine's title is focusing on the internal conflict of not belonging to certain societal circles, being an outsider and not fitting into the very polarized gender binary norms. I also helped to translate some of the texts and interviews in the zine to English.
