Malwina Chabocka – Art & Design

Why work with me

I am a creative designer, dividing my time between paints and pixels. Trained at Central Saint Martins in London and Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw, I’ve since graduating worked on numerous projects for clients from diverse industries in the UK, Poland, Portugal and Netherlands. I work across graphic and motion design, animation, video editing, illustration, web design, branding, art direction, performance design, you name it. I also have extensive writing experience so I can make you a website from A to Z (on my favourite WordPress platform).

I’m not a corporate designer or a copycat, so the “we want what they have” approach doesn’t resonate with me, go to Fiverr for that sort of thing. I approach every project with the creativity and open-mindedness of an artist so I can really understand your needs. I avoid locking myself in a certain format – instead, I like to experiment with all sorts of tools, styles, shapes and directions. People who seek creativity, dedication and professionalism love working with me – please see testimonials.

I am an OCD-like perfectionist so everything is polished to the very last detail, and I am always available to discuss anything before, during and after the project. I live in The Hague, Netherlands, and work remotely so wherever in the world you are based, I’ll be happy to create something unique for you, be it a one-off project or a long-term collaboration. Oh, and I’m VAT-registered.

Software & skills

Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign & After Effects / Figma / WordPress / HTML & CSS / Mailchimp / Trello / Microsoft Office

Besides design skills, I’m an author of +100 pieces (articles, blog posts, academic writing) and 2 books (+150,000 words in total). You can trust me with your web copy.

I speak the following languages: English (bilingual proficiency), Polish (native), French (rusty but solid), Dutch (can communicate & I’m eagerly learning) and Portuguese (basic, but I managed to communicate in expat-free suburbs of Lisbon where I lived for a year).



Malwina’s professionalism, attention to detail and aptitude, oh, and patience! is second to none. As an artist myself, who has very limited knowledge of website building, I really appreciated how quickly she got the job done. It was a pleasure to work with Malwina and although I am very happy and appreciative that she handed over in such a short time, I am almost sad that our interactions have come to an end!

Nahid Ashby, Silchester Residents Association

Malwina's attention to detail and positive spirit make her a truly wonderful collaborator. She has completed various design projects for our art gallery and has always exceeded our expectations. Beginning with a beautiful catalogue she designed for us, she has continued to show her skills in our newsletters, social media banners, as well as various leaflets and press releases. She is an asset to any project and I cannot recommend her highly enough!

Gita Cooper-van Ingen, Daniel Blau

Malwina worked several months for us on branding and graphic / motion design. She did a great job in designing and delivering a marketing video with one of our international clients, and helped us forward with marketing materials. Most of all, Malwina has a fantastic personality that allowed her to easily blend in with our team!

Norbert Dolle, WhiteSpace

Malwina has been a great addition to our team managing to adopt our tone of voice and portrait our company image instantly in her tasks in publicity and marketing. She's proactive and works with a lot of self-initiative bringing forward her own ideas as and where appropriate. We have already recommended her to a number of other creative industry businesses which has led to successful partnerships. Finally, she's a music lover, just like us, and fun and easy company to have around.

Anna Tjan, Oaksmith Studio

We commissioned Malwina to produce a logo for a cultural project. Our brief for the logo included several important conceptual and practical elements and she quickly understood what we were looking for. Malwina came back to us with a range of initial sketches and was very receptive to our feedback throughout the entire process. She is a talented artist, designer and communicator. We're delighted with the logo and would be happy to work with her again.

What a find! Malwina has partnered with me on a broad spectrum of functions and projects. From building websites, thinking through and providing solutions for technical challenges, to participating in art direction, definition of visual language and graphic design. I think the core value of working with Malwina is not only does she implement on time line as agreed, she will also ‘think’ on my behalf, picking up on oversights and developing ideas. Additionally, Malwina has managed the production and issuance of all press releases, provided my social media content, and worked with third parties designing and producing products. Trustworthy, disciplined, informed and Malwina’s English is better than mine, and I’m English!

Christopher Everard, Interlife Pictures

Working with Malwina was a very good experience. She took the time to really understand what I was looking for in logo design, and the building of a new website. She made sure to incorporate my ideas, and offer many of her own. Malwina met all deadlines on time, offering feedback on where she was in the process on a regular basis. I recommend working with Malwina if you want to receive very professional results for very reasonable costs. I know that I will use her design and website services the next time I need that done.

Tariq Nasir, Unusuality Productions

Malwina was very efficient and excellent in all ways making the process very easy for me. All our correspondence was through email and Skype, yet this was never a problem. Thanks very much for your hard work.

Claire Blundell-Jones, Artist

I hired Malwina to design the key graphics of the TV series Deep Cuts. I was immediately impressed by her ability to listen carefully to my needs and propose ideas and solutions to the different challenges. She understood the visuals and the narrative I was after straight away, and developed the graphics accordingly in a speedy and professional manner. She was always willing to do minor tweaks at my request and prepared all files ready to be taken to the printers. The director and producer were very happy with the visual result and original designs within budget. In short, Malwina is a reliable, creative and efficient professional as well as an invaluable problem-solver, well worth keeping in your books.

Irene Moreno Feliu, Production Designer

Malwina was very responsive. From the first feedback to the final design there was a drastic change - and Malwina was flexible enough to make it happen.

Bob Denham, Director / Producer

Working with Malwina was a dream. I had immediate trust with her as she was very organised in her communication with me, providing me with paperwork confirming how long the job would take, including costs. At every step of the way, she was vigilant in communicating about how the job was progressing and where she was with the project budget. I have no doubt in recommending Malwina & her craftsmanship and I have every intention of working with her myself on several forthcoming projects. Malwina has a deep understanding of artists and their needs. She pays attention to every detail and delivers to high standards.

Shabnam Shabazi, Artist

Malwina instantly got the brief and created some great designs. She responded very quickly to feedback and I was very happy with the end result!

Adam Butcher, Film Director

Malwina is an excellent, reliable and creative artist. She has designed set and costumes for one of my productions and I was very happy with our collaboration.
