Hi, I’m Joanna, Creative Director and Founder of Milk Bar Design. I am on a mission to fearlessly help entrepreneurs visualize their dreams. Equipped with over 14 years of hands-on design experience, ranging from digital agencies like Big Spaceship in Brooklyn, various small design boutiques to large corporations like Toy’s R Us – I am always ready to roll up my sleeves, stretch my imagination and make great things happen. I believe good design is good business and in today’s world we need both.
I have earned Master’s Degree in the Designer as Author and Entrepreneur program at The School of Visual Arts in NYC and a BFA in Graphic Design from Rutgers University. While at SVA, I studied under the most renowned designers and faculty such as: Milton Glaser, Stefan Sagmeister, Brian Collins and Steven Heller among many others. They have been extremely instrumental in further refining my professional training.
Having grown up in the quaint village of Doly, Poland, I find the need to represent my cultural roots. Therefore, I proudly serve as a Pierogi Ambassador and Founder of Krasula Pierogi Bar in New York City. Even though I am not a chef, I have a passion for coming up with new ideas for pierogi fillings – spicy sausage and kale have been the biggest hit to date.
