Hello!

My name is Ruta Krau.

I am a Visual Designer & Photographer, pursuing meaningful creative relationships that transforms unique ideas to life:

Brand & Identity Design . Editorial Design . Graphic Design . Illustration . Packaging . Photography . UX/UI Design

I studied architecture in Lithuania and Portugal. Since 2017 I work at WZMH Architects in Toronto. My work there encompasses Branding, Identity, Packaging, Print and UX/UI design for the firm’s R+D initiatives, which include the award-winning Intelligent Structural Panel. I also support the firm’s Marketing efforts as a Graphic Designer. I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Architecture at the Vilnius Gediminas Technical University. Due to my talent, passion and unwavering commitment, I was appointed to Associate in 2020.
