Polina Joffe is a visual artist and creative director based between Berlin and Helsinki.

Time spent researching legibility and modern reading systems at University of the Arts London underpins Polina’s typographic-led process, which she has applied to work in her practice that involves design, print making, painting, artists' books, coding and sculpture.

She was previously a designer at Tate and is currently a Head of Brand Design at Ableton. She regularly lectures and runs workshops on the intersections of art and design.
