Hi, I’m Adela Bukva.
I’m a young graphic designer based out of Beverly, Massachusetts. I graduated from Montserrat College of Art in the spring of 2017 with a BFA in Graphic Design.
I’m originally from Bosnia; my family and I immigrated to the United States in the summer of 2001 as war refugees. From the beginning, language and identity have been huge areas of fascination for me. Much of my creative thinking comes from the internal clash of duel identities. There’s certain inner ideals and forms of one’s self that don’t always agree, so there’s this constant underlying kinetic energy that fuels my creative drive- for the better, I’d like to think. My work is greatly influenced by the strict design principles of the Soviet Era meeting the fluidity and the freedom of Western design- think Eastern Soviet Bloc meets Western; its a collision of two opposing cultures coming together to create something new.
As designer, my focus ultimately lies in clear communication and functionality. The process isn’t always pretty but I don’t stop until the job is done. When working with clients, I’m flexible and dedicated. I strive to create the best that I can. I live for the challenge, I love what I do, and I’m always looking to learn something new.
