In her design of William Shakespeare’s Macbeth, the author used her illustrations created in the fourth year of her studies in Lech Majewski’s Visual Communication and Poster Design Studio. Her graduation project allowed her to develop and improve her personal style in the pictures and posters accompanying the book. She used photos made by herself and by employing the techniques of collage and cut‑out she created a surreal vision of a world full of bloody ornaments.
