Hi I’m Johana, I was born and raised in Prague and still reside there today. I studied art from early age. I always dreamed of being like Woody Allen and later wanted to be like Jessica Walsh. After graduating I gained entry to Advertising School and studied graphic design, which I absolutely loved! From there I moved to the University of Art. I participated in many exhibitions. Following my studies, I accepted my first job at DDB Prague, where I was trained in art direction, presentation skills and how to communicate with our clients. After several successful years, I made the move to Ogilvy Prague were I currently work. At the moment I’m working on campaign for the biggest bank in the Czech republic and also on a campaign for a charity. This is what I really love as I think advertising can really help people. As with most people, I’m motivated by success. I recently placed 2nd in the Czech Lion Awards. This really convinced me that advertising is where my heart lies. I see it as a reward for all my hard work. One of my other great passions is drawing. My book “IN LOVE WITH JAPAN” has recently been featured in the Béhance gallery.
