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 design the news at the National Post. 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.
