My name is Jasmine Miikika Craciun. I’m a proud Barkindji, Malyangapa woman who’s grown up in Newcastle. I have always had a love of art and design and graduated from the University of Newcastle in 2018 with a bachelor of Visual Communication Design. During my three years of study, I also completed courses in animation, typography, and natural history illustration. For the last three years, I have been a freelancing graphic designer and multi-media artist.
I was lucky enough to grow up in a family of many diverse backgrounds; growing up alongside my European immigrant grandparents on my Fathers side and my Aboriginal family on my Mothers side.
I believe having this diverse background has given me the opportunity to see and design from a different perspective. I pride myself on designing for today's diverse audience and understanding what is needed to communicate with unique groups of people. I believe design should be used to enact change. My work tells a story and is made for everyone.
