Art Director and Illustrator

Joanna Varró

Hi, my name is Joanna and I am an Art Director, Illustrator, and Design Strategist.


I am best known for branding strategy and my illustrations within the mental health and educational industry. Education reform and personal growth is my Achilles point and I can’t stop talking about them. I love art because it helps me to connect with my audience on an emotional level.


I had the pleasure to learn everything about business while working at Saxo Bank as well as do some creative campaigns for Pampers in Saatchi & Saatchi.


I’m the Co-Founder of Jo&Rad, a creative agency specializing in brand strategy, art direction, and illustrations.


I co-host the creative talk show It’s Time for Jo & Rad on Youtube.


When I am mentoring young people, I want to give them the confidence, resources, and support that could help them to be the best version of themselves.


I am Polish, studied in Cyprus, worked in Czech, Hungary, and I am still looking for my final destination.
