About.jpg

Hi, my name is Jola Bańkowska and I'm a director, animator and illustrator based in London. I studied Graphic Design at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw, where I was fortunate to meet amazing people and develop my passion for design, animation and storytelling.

I currently work as an in-house animator and illustrator at Culture Trip.  
I'm  open for commissions and collaborations, so don’t hesitate to contact me if you have something in mind:
