HILKA RIBA
Hilka is a graphic designer and typographer with a special interest in lettering. She finished her studies at the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design in Budapest, Hungary. She gained experience at various advertising agencies, but decided it was time to become independent in 2005, so she founded her own creative studio Grafixd.

Hilka's work has been featured in a number of international design publications as well as design sites and blogs across the net. She regularly takes part in group exhibitions.
