I'm Simona Čechová, illustrator working in both hand-drawn and digital styles, passionate about finding the best tools to execute content-driven visual solutions for clients across disciplines. I have experience in editorial and book illustration, illustration for motion, product branding and communication. I am a member of ASIL - Slovak Illustrators Association.
Originally from Slovakia, I studied advertising design at University of Bedfordshire in England and international marketing at Edinburgh Napier University in Scotland.
When I'm not drawing, you can find me beekeeping. Or hiking. Or exploring cities. Or finding beauty in ordinary things.
Let's work together
I am based in Bratislava (Slovakia) but work internationally.
