Jan Ciecierski, graphic designer, image maker, educator

I am a graphic designer, reacting on global changes. An imagemaker, creating impact with images. An educator, encouraging students to reach beyond limits.

The world is in a constant flux. Culturally, politically, socially, economically, …  so is education and design. As a designer and educator, I belief that designers have a very powerful position, as they can create images that react on these changes and even shape them. This belief guides my actions as a designer, illustrator and educator.
