Zuzu is a Slovak designer, illustrator, photographer and craft-maker with a passion for the natural world. She is currently based in Sydney, Australia, after spending a few years wandering the world. Zuzu and her boyfriend opened the independent graphic design studio, here in Sydney, called Crea Crea Studio.
Known for her diverse skill-set, she has worked with international advertising agencies, start-ups and various organisations including: Coca-Cola, Absolut Vodka, McCann, and many more.
As a visual artist and designer, Zuzu has two different styles evident in her personal work. Her recent project In Hide and Seek represents her long-time passion for linocut technique and brings it to the wider audience.
The series is very minimalistic and uses unique linocut technique that is then reproduced by old printing method from Japan called risograph. The whole process of this printing is eco-friendly. The stencil for printing is made of banana peels, the paints are made of soybeans and all it’s printed on recycled paper. I try to be more conscious about the environment and this technique is the right way to do it. Even for the packaging, I use a biodegradable plastic sleeve.
Zuzu’s other work, representing her "inner-child" side, is portrayed through fun, children's illustrations. Zuzu has published the children’s book Bunnies Adventures, which has won an award “Best children’s book 2013” in the Art Book Wanted Awards. The book was published in Slovakia.
She has exhibited her artworks across the globe.
