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.
