My name is Dorota Grabkowska and I’m an award-winning, multidisciplinary designer, artist and entrepreneur with over 10 years of experience, working across graphic, product and spatial design. I have worked on a broad spectrum of projects and collaborations throughout my career, including branding, illustrations, animations, photo & video, product design and experiential marketing.
Born and raised in Wrocław, Poland, I moved to the UK in 2006 and completed a Bachelor’s degree in Design and Applied Arts. In 2014, I set up a design consultancy, Fanatic House, and worked in product development sector for 2 years before receiving the Women in Innovation Award from Innovate UK in 2016 and being recognised as one of the ‘Most promising female entrepreneurs’ by Innovate UK in July 2017.
My career path has been full of twists and turns, which I see as the key ingredient to my multidisciplinary approach.
If I’m not creating, I’m most likely riding my bike. Mountain biking is a big part of my life – it has taken me to many beautiful places across the globe and has given me a completely new outlook on life. You can follow my biking adventures on my Instagram page: @dorotagrr
