A lover of paper -“I mostly do everything on paper, so if I do a layout I print out everything to get a sense of the materials. I really have to be able to put it on the table or the wall, and if I do illustrations I cut everything out of colored paper. Working with my hands is super important for me—I’m very tactile. That’s why I work a lot with book design, as it’s creating something you can hold in your hands” she says to AIGA- Anna Haas is a name to remember and a master of type to admire.
