Kasia Piatek

Kasia Piatek – Designer

Freelance designer and illustrator with a passion for hand-lettering. My work is cheerful and speaks to the inner child inside all adults!

Overview

I'm a designer by education (WIT in Warsaw and the Academy of Fine Arts in Katowice) and illustrator from the heart. What makes me stand out is my creative mind, silly sense of humour, word-plays, good eye for typography and attention to details!

I'm an illustrator, a designer, a book designer, letterer and aspiring 2d animator. In my work I try to live by the motto of my beloved designer William Morris. HHH. It stands for Head, meaning creativity and imagination, Hand – good craftsmanship and Heart – passion and honesty.

I used to work in children's books publishing house so I have an experience with often tricky DTP :) I often work with books and print.

Kasia did an excellent job on what was a challenging project - a gamebook where the reader makes decisions for the protagonist. That meant she had to help me randomize the page count, create icons to convey the motif of a passport/travel itinerary, and incorporate illustrations. I'm thrilled with the way my book came out and I would highly recommend her for your next project.
