HILKA RIBA
I am a graphic designer with a special interest in lettering. I studied typography at the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design in Budapest, Hungary. After having worked for several advertising agencies I chose to go freelance to be able to design for clients from all around the world. 

My work has been featured in a number of international design publications as well as design sites and blogs across the net. I regularly take part in group exhibitions. I have won numerous awards.
