Maria Mandea, play designer, illustrator and photographer based in Bucharest, Romania. 

About my practice
While working with different mediums: digital and traditional illustration, photography, handmade approaches and digital manipulations, the concept of play is central in everything that I do. This website is a personal portfolio, with projects I've been working on for several years. However, in 2017, with Teodora Ungureanu, we've founded Studio Super Serios - A design studio that focuses on the play experience.
I recently graduated from UAUIM Bucharest with a BA+MA degree in Product Design. I've also had fun with a 2-year pedagogical module at UNATC Bucharest and the Fotopoetica school of photography.
