Zdravo! *

My name is Sanya, I am a visual designer, artist, and illustrator.

Born in Tehran, to Bosnian parents, I spent my childhood in former Yugoslavia before relocating to Arizona. After receiving my degree in Visual Communications from the University of Arizona, I spent many years living and working in Chicago, where I met some amazing people. Eventually, it was time to head back west, to nature. I currently reside on the lovely pacific coast of San Francisco.

My emphasis is on elegant and effective human-centered communications.

Over the years, I've had the privilige to work with various non-profit organizations, product research innnovation firms, health software applications, the music industry, editorial and book illustration. In addition, I taught numerous courses in printmaking and digital media, at various arts and youth organizations and at university level.
