PRATT INSTITUTE

Christiana Theophanopoulos was born in Paris and raised in Athens. She studied in New York and holds a BFA in Advertising and Art Direction. After graduating, she returned to Greece and worked as an Art Director at Ogilvy & Mather. Currently living in New York, Christiana is a graduate packaging design student at Pratt Institute. This year she won Project Wild Rabbit, an ongoing collaboration between Pratt and Hennessy V.S that challenges students to create original artwork inspired by Hennessy’s “Wild Rabbit” campaign and its mantra of “Never stop, Never settle,” with her piece Meraki. When Christiana is not designing, she can be found living a simple lifestyle on a remote Greek island.
