About

Information about multidisciplinary designer and editor Lola Landekic.

 

Hello!

 
 
Documentary-Still-01-NoSubtitles.jpg

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. I make motion design resource Art of the Title and I make books at HarperCollins. 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. Also, it's pronounced LAND-de-kitsch.

 
 
 

What I do

 
 

Art Direction and design

I am an art director and designer with more than 10 years of experience, working on branding and graphic design projects for print, film, web, mobile, and apparel. Currently I'm a Senior Designer at publisher HarperCollins, creating covers, lettering and interior type design for fiction, non-fiction, cookbooks, children's books, you-name-it.

From 2014-2017, I was the Brand Lead & Graphic Designer for OCAD University, where one of my projects was selected for an award at the 2017 RGD In-House Design Awards. Previously, I worked as an editorial designer for national newspapers The Toronto Star and The Globe and Mail, and as a designer for publisher Random House of Canada.

I have been a judge for The Juno Awards, voting in the Recording Package of the Year category, and The Motion Awards, voting in the Title Sequence category.
