Gabika Rusková is a graphic designer based in Bratislava. In 2016 she graduated from Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Bratislava and studied also at Designskolen Kolding, Denmark. She considers herself to be an explorer, hates the “no” word and loves everything esthetic. The more she learns, the happier she becomes and likes to stay open-minded.
She is fascinated by the online space, not only as a tool for easy showcasing, but because of the aspect that print could never give her. Motion. Making visuals alive not only on the outside, but also from the inside. She thinks adding emotions to this anonymous space is something she is willing to work at for as long as she can.
