ANNASTASIA

One of my more adventurous occupations has been working at a Swedish language immersion camp, Sjölunden, at the Concordia Language Villages. I have spent two summers there as a counselor, language group instructor, life guard, sailing instructor, and unofficial resident designer; crafting various signs, staff apparel, and t-shirts for camp events. During my second year on staff I began collaborating with the language villages' marketing department to design a series of apparel for Sjölunden's village shop. I relied on my experiences as a staff member, numerous years as a camper at Sjölunden, and communication with current staff and villagers to create a set of custom graphics celebrating a few core elements of the Swedish village through the target language.
