Stina Johansson
Founder, designer, workshop facilitator

BA (Hons), Graphic Design
MA Design, Communication Design

My name is Stina, but some call me Stingo. I am a Viking descendent with a passion for nature, yoga, sustainability and spreading good vibes (unlike my violent ancestors). Educated in Sweden, England and Australia, I have over ten years industry experience from working in Glasgow, New York, Sydney and Melbourne.

If I’ve learnt anything about design in the last decade, it’s that design should always aim to invite. Design is the language spoken between your amazing idea and the audience that you want to reach. You don’t want to annoy them by sending confusing messages or pretend to be something that you’re not. The consequences of bad communication can be costly. This is why I think designers are so important in this world.

As a graphic designer, I will approach your project the same way I always do; with a mix of inquisitiveness, excitement and practical thinking. You’ll be the judge of the outcome, but nothing makes me happier than seeing a truly stoked client, so we’re sort of in this together.
