Ukrainian illustrator Evgeniya Manko depicts the world of modern-day women in her illustrations, heavily influenced by fashion, which is not surprising considering her previous career as a fashion photographer. With a degree from the Kyiv National University of Technology and Design and the Academy of Photography in Warsaw, her true passion lies with drawing, especially with gouache. Transmission of tonality and color, its density and texture, she seems to have a special affection for pastels and matt colors.
Her work reminds me of flipping through the pages of a glossy fashion magazine, with beautiful editorials gracing each page from exotic locations showcasing the hottest apparel of the season. Always aiming to awake positive emotions, Mankos style feels light and approachable.

Budapest based DekoRatio Branding & Design Studio specializes in empowering ambitious businesses through original design, creating beautiful, strong, and consistent visual identities through conceptual logo design, illustration, and typography. Their latest concept has become reality in the shape of a takeaway sushi restaurant in the heart of the city. Sushiroll introduces a whole new concept to the ever-changing gastronomy scene in Budapest: sushi as street food. Their uncut sushi rolls are ready in seconds and they can easily be enjoyed on the go. No need to wait till you get home or fuss around with chopsticks, just grab one and dig in!
DekoRatio’s aim was to create a friendly and approachable design that shows a new exciting side of the infamous cuisine and hopefully would convert skeptics to join the lovers of the popular Japanise fast food. The “brackets” (officially known as parentheses) in the logo represents the endless possibilities of the sushi rolls – as well as visually reminding of an actual sushi roll! A fresh and somewhat surprising color scheme of blue, white and peach, use of numerous pictograms and a hint of Japanese culture in the typography, all show a stylish, contemporary visual identity sure to bring in customers from different walks of life.
