Anna Björnström

What is your name and how would you briefly describe what you do?

Hi, I´m Anna Bjornstrom, illustrator and graphic designer from Gustavsberg, Stockholm county. I make books and illustrations for mainly publishers, national coiunsils, organisations and companys. My work covers both printed and digital publications as e-pub or reading apps. I use CMS (Joomla) as a tool for designing and maintaining webb.

Have you received any awards or prizes?

I won the competition Pixels of Fury in Berlin during TYPO Talks Berlin.

What part of your creative work do you like the most?

I like the experience "everything you need comes to you" in the middle of a creative phase of a work. Of course it´s a matter of work, work, work visualising the goal . It´s a matter of connecting brain, heart and hands.
