Ania took the long road to Digital Art and Storytelling: holding a bachelor’s degree in Linguistics, she first found herself in TV journalism pursuing a 10-year-long presenter’s career with RT (an International news TV network). Starting with a program she hosted & edited about Russian Culture, Ania gradually built up enough stamina to present an hour-long live daily evening show that ran for 6 years. The show’s unscripted format led Anna to crave the structure and elegance of planned digital narration so she turned to content creating spanning visual design, creative writing & producing. She works as a Creative Lead at the award-winning digital in-house agency RT Creative Lab (#2 Agency in official Digital Creativity Rankings in Russia for 2020). Her work has been recognized at major global festivals such as Clio Awards, The One Show, ADC, D&AD, Promax, Shorty, Adweek, Digiday & many others. She also has an Internet Oscar to her name being a 2021 Webby Awards Winner.
