ACADEMY OF ART UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF GRAPHIC DESIGN

I’m Hedvig. I aim for intelligent creative solutions with an emphasis on storytelling and strategy. Currently, I’m pursuing a BFA in Graphic Design at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. I strongly believe in the power of visual communication to create social change through engagement and concept-driven design. Previously I studied politics and strategic communication which greatly influences my creative problem-solving. Obsessed with details and complexity, I cherish design which is risk-taking and daring.
