Hello! My name is Jaana, I am a Tallinn-born, Berlin-based graphic designer. I am specialised in book design,
visual identities, print campaigns, information graphics, and wall graphics.
I hold a MA degree in political science from Goldsmiths College, University of London. Goldsmiths is well-known
for its interdisciplinary approach to teaching. The department engages students from very different backgrounds
(both in terms of origin and previous fields of study), fostering cross-cultural understanding and learning.
While designing is not always seen as a political act, it does involve many political choices. Questions such as
where should production take place, who is being represented, how people are being addressed, and what role
design plays in creating desires all have political implications, and designers have to be aware of such implications.
I want to use design not only as an answer to the client’s brief but also as a tool for questioning and thinking,
in order to be able to process and work through the tensions and complexities of society.
I am looking forward to hearing from you, whether it be for work, a collaborative project, or just for a chat.
