Meet Designer: Ola Mirecka

Ola Mirecka

I combine and shape objects and spaces around me in an experimental and playful way.

Wow, ok! Tell us your title now?

What is your typical "day in the life of a designer"?

Every day is different and I try to keep it this way. If I forget to eat it means it was great - not too healthy but exciting.

Design principles you live by?

How to make this planet a good home for everyone.

What is the greatest design object, service, product or graphic ever made, in your opinion?

They are all part of the journey. Not sure if I ever made anything the greatest, it’s hard to feel that about your own work that you become very critical about. I think the greatest is still ahead of me!

Books you highly recommend for anyone pursuing a career in design?

Read something that relaxes you, don’t read too much about design. Beautiful literature.
