Katya is an illustrator and graphic designer who sometimes goes by the enigmatic handle: Pony of the Sea. Check out her portfolio at behance.net/KatyaWagner and her instagram account @pony_of_the_sea.
While she is partial to the siren call of fresh, blank paper and a virgin Unipin fineliner (0.1mm please!) her illustration work is mainly rendered digitally. Working mainly in Adobe Illustrator, Katya strives to swim against the ever-trendy flow of clean vector art by delivering something that is hand-drawn (thanks Wacom!) yet infinitely scaleable and amenable to a wide variety of applications.
She is well versed in Photoshop and InDesign which adds extra layers of possibility to each creation. Katya has also completed short courses in Adobe Premier and After Effects, adding basic motion and video editing to her skillset, which includes both print and digital experience.
During her five years of agency experience as a designer, Katya has worked through the line with many different clients and brands including Standard Bank, South African Breweries, Castle Lager, Castle Milk Stout, Castle Lite, Carling Black Label, Web Africa, Pernod Ricard, Malibu Rum, Red Heart Rum, Allan Gray, Metropolitan, DirectAxis, Emirates, Ponds, Red Bull, Graham Beck, Steenberg, Philip Morris International, Sanlam Reality, Total, The Glenlivet, Martell and Nedbank.
