About

Information about multidisciplinary designer and editor Lola Landekic.

 

Hello!

 
 
Lola Landekic

My name is Lola Landekic and I have a lot of tabs open right now.

I'm a multidisciplinary designer, illustrator, and film specialist based in Toronto.

Currently I am Senior Designer at publisher HarperCollins and Managing Editor and Co-owner of motion design resource Art of the Title. Sometimes I give talks.

Most days, I work at the intersection of design, branding, and moving image. I have dedicated the last decade to design practice, illustration, and research and writing, particularly in regards to motion graphics in film and television.

Also: it's pronounced LAND-de-kitsch.
