Aleksandra Mirocka

Graphic designer

Krakow, Poland
I am a 26 year old graphic designer living in Kraków, Poland. I've finished my master degree at Graphic Design Department of Academy of Fine Arts in Kraków and gained experience working for various agencies like eg Saatchi & Saatchi IS in Warsaw, Phenomaly or Millstudio, a Red Dot Design Award winner studio form Kraków. I've been freelancing for 7 years with either local or foreign companies and I am open for any projects including worldwide collaboration.
I specialize in branding, UI and UX design.

I believe that good design is all about finding a perfect combination of simplicity and functionality with a characteristic hint, that will make it beautifully unique.
