Showcase & Discover Creative Work

Katarina Dobranska

Spatial Designer

London, United Kingdom
I have graduated from Interior Design, and have 13 months work experience in Exhibition Design. I have worked as an intern and a freelancer for leading Exhibition Design companies, where I worked with the design team to come up with design ideas, designed graphics, research, develop designs, visualise, storyboard and model exhibits. I completed a 2 week work experience at Frank PR, where I helped with setting up events, and came up with some event ideas. I also worked with an industrial designer, Studio Libertiny in Rotterdam, to build a large scale model for an installation for the Exhibition Road Show in London held during the London 2012 Olympics.

I love to draw, paint and learn foreing languages. I can speak good German, French, intermediate Korean, and fluent Slovakian. I am have attended Chinese Ink Painting courses and am currently attending life drawing classes where I develop my skills in drawing and painting.
