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 recently finished my new short film "Story" and now I work as an in-house animator at Culture Trip.
I'm open for commissions and collaborations, so don’t hesitate to contact me if you have something in mind:
