Andrea Malanski is a Sweden-based designer. Her projects are focused in narrative environments and visual communication. Her current research focuses on design processes and tools within the broader understandings and issues related to heritage practices. Such perspectives aim to blur the boundaries between design and non-design disciplines, as in anthropology and archaeology with a specific focus on historical and contemporary social issues. She holds a Master’s degree in Design, HDK Gothenburg University.
