Sasha Prood

Sasha grew up just outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania USA and trained at Carnegie Mellon’s School of Design, St. Gallen, Switzerland’s Schule fur Gestaltung and Cooper Union’s typeface design certificate program, Type@Cooper. She is a full-time freelance designer, illustrator and artist who currently resides in a tiny studio apartment in Brooklyn, New York filled to the brim with plants. Sasha creates hand lettering, illustrations, patterns and graphics using pencil, pen and watercolor with the computer. Thematically her works lean toward the organic, natural and scientific with vintage, utilitarian and childhood influences. Animals, vegetables and minerals of all kinds are commonly found in Sasha's illustrations, creating everything from logos to posters to apparel graphics.
