My name is Joanna Gniady and that's my about.
I guess you'd like to know something about me before we create something awesome together.
Don't we?

Who am I?
I'm a left-handed illustrator living in Wroclaw (Poland), doing what I enjoy and enjoying what I do.

So what do I do?
I think and draw, draw and think, and over and over and over. Over.

Who do I draw for?
Most of the time for international and Polish magazines, publishing houses, cultural organizations, advertising agencies and music bands. Actually, I step in all activities that are worth a d**n.

What keeps my work running?
Polka dots, flamboyant moustaches, French art, prosecco and palm trees.

What makes me thrill lately?
Preparing works for my two group exhibitions in summer 2017 and one solo show at the beginning of 2018.

Well, that's what it's all about.


I'm represented in France by Creasenso

in Germany, Austria and Switzerland by Zwei Agenten

and in Scandinavia by Harvest Agency.

I'm also a member of the Association of Graphic Designers (STGU) - an organization that brings together the best graphic designers in Poland.

THE STUDIO 

Place where I work, meet friends, sleep on the desk, and work even more.

WORK PROCESS

Everything starts on a blank sheet. Sketching helps me think and my hands like to get dirty. But the ideas I show my clients are usually advanced and colourful. I'm not a work-in-progress-type-of-person.

THE PARK

If I jumped out of my studio's window, I'd be in that park (ground floor, no worries). And it's one of the most magical places in Wroclaw. This is where my merry inspiration goes around.

THE BEAST

Like in every self-respecting studio, we have a pet. It's not a dog, it's not a seal. It's a panther. I'll tell you the secret. It creates 90% of my illustrations. But please, don't let the cat out of the bag.
