Hello, I am Zanna Olestsik, designer based in Edinburgh, UK.

Originally from Tallinn, Estonia I moved overseas to Edinburgh in 2011 to study Creative Advertising and fell in love with the castles, fog and the mountains.  I love creating distinctive visual solutions for companies anywhere in the world.

I am always actively seeking for ways to improve and further my skills through side projects and self education. With a strong interest in digital and UX design I look to explore these areas further within my side projects.

In my free time I explore different illustration techniques, study psychology, design mobile apps and do aerial dancing.

I am always on the look out for new exciting projects. So if you like what I do and you have something in mind – please get in touch.

My CV is available on request.
