I am Ana-Pola,
dreamer, cinephile, book lover,
graphic designer and illustrator.
I value a free, creative and venturous lifestyle, not led to the standard ideas. I often felt misplaced in the 9-to-5-jobs I had to take to be able to afford life. After hours I kept looking for ways to be creative and combined the work with extra studies in film and graphic design. Never giving up on the dream to one day work for myself. To have the luxury to work on my own projects at my own pace without stressing about getting by. And at this point in my life, I feel like I'm finally getting there.
I love design with an artistic but simple character. If asked to describe my style I would say minimalistic with a romantic touch.
Since I started working as a graphic designer, I've always been looking for ways to integrate flowers into commissions or personal gifts. Recently, I stumbled on the proces of cyanotype. It's based on an old analog photographic way to create blueprints or copies. When you coat paper with a mix of Ammonium ferric citrate and Potassium ferricyanide and expose it to the sun, you get a vibrant (prussian) blue color. Depending on the position of the sun and the exposure time you get a different shade of blue.
So these days, I'm always on the lookout for interesting plants and some sun. Never a dull moment, never the same result and still much to learn.
