Anna Horvath is the founder of annajames, a freelance illustrator and narrative designer creating works in various disciplines of the visual arts, counting also exhibition-, installation-, and furniture design as her areas of expertise...

As she was always passionate about storytelling through art, she graduated with an MA in Narrative Environments from Central Saint Martins - University of the Arts London. An architecture degree from Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design Budapest provided a solid foundation for her exhibition- and installation design projects.

Her primary focus now is on illustration, the visualization of great architectural pieces and witty social commentary forms the basis of her work.

Her work featured in several architecture and design magazines. Anna also uses her sarcastic tone of voice for the capturing of societal peculiarities in the digital age.This playful approach and cleverly ironic tone runs throughout her work and manifests similarly in her design projects.

In the field of exhibition design Anna participated in numerous projects of Chezweitz Design Studio in Berlin, where she was part of the Design Team whose winning concept for exhibition design of the prestigious Jewish Museum Berlin’s new Permanent Exhibition could be realized. At the internationally recognized London-based experience design agency: Event Communications also added the her CV of employment.

Anna uses her architecturally trained eye for designing site-specific installations for various purposes. One of her project worth noting is “Past Continuous”, what was created in Budapest’s more than 100 years old emblematic art centre, Fészek Artists’ Club. In 2014 she won the opportunity to design a window-display exclusively created for Oxford Street during London Fashion Week in February 2014.

Anna’s furniture design projects add a pop of colour to her portfolio. Her minimalist chair made of concrete and recycled bicycle tires designed specifically for Telep, the gallery- workshop space and bar located in the centre of Budapest. Anna also had the chance to participate in a narrative design workshop for Jongo da Serrinha, a local NGO in Rio de Janeiro that is dedicated to traditional African-Brazilian jongo music.

In the summer of 2017 Anna won the Creative Open, a creative competition organised by Republic Group and Umbrella Budapest.

She is currently living in Lisbon with frequent trips to abroad and Hungary.
