About

I am the CEO of a cooperative of designers that gather people from different areas of design. Our workflow is based on the idea that we provide best suited people for the design team. I have recently been involved in the area of industrial design, furniture design, graphic design, brand creation and design for visually impared (people who are blind and or low vision). I work mostly as a team manager and am trying to connect our clients to use their assets with each other in our network.

profession/expertise

I was studying Biotechnology at the University of Warsaw and Design on Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts and Hochschule für Gestaltung Schwäbisch Gmünd

I began my career as a designer in 2016. In 2017 I received the Must Have award at Łódź Design Week for a project in which I was working as lead constructor and designer. Since then I worked as a freelancer finishing my degree and in 2019. I have established a co-op design studio which now counts up to 14 individual designers. We are running a company working in areas from industrial design to social design.

As a biotechnologist I was working in medical diagnostics and got experienced in a neurobiology lab work. I was also consulting numerous projects and art exhibitions that involved bioart and critical art in the area of environmentally engaged art.
