Illustrated Interview With Theresa Grieben

Scroll

We recently had the pleasure of being a member of the jury for the Etsy Awards 2016, contributing to the selection of 60 finalists from over 600 entries across categories ranging from Fashion & Accessories to Art & Illustration And Paper Goods.

The winner of the latter category was Theresa Grieben, whose winning design was a postcard depicting native birds of New Zealand. The Berlin-based illustrator has a rich background in graphic and communication design, having studied on exchange at the Moholy-Nagy University of Art & Design Budapest before completing her Master of Design in Auckland, New Zealand. Travel has always been a passion for Grieben, who has made extensive journeys to South East Asia, Russia and Mongolia. Currently back in Berlin – for the meantime, at least – Grieben took some time out of her busy schedule to offer us a glimpse into her world through an Illustrated Interview. For more of her work, take a look at her Etsy shop and her Instagram feed.
