    Annaka Olsen

    Profile

    Annaka Olsen's graphic design practice emerges from research into computation, digital publishing and speculative design. She asks how we can change the structures of digital publishing and platform building to become collaborative and ethical practices — resisting hierarchy and reclaiming agency in the spaces we occupy. She primarily does freelance design for arts, technology, design, and cultural organizations, perferably onsite or within small studios.
