Serra Utkum İkiz, Design and Graphic Arts Coordinator

Serra joined the TRS team as an intern in October 2020 and has been working on the TRS/Penguin Random House PRH Fire Relief Program and social media campaigns as a designer and illustrator. She loves the use design as a way to communicate with young readers.

She is a senior student at Urban-Regional Planning and Sociology at Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University at Istanbul, Turkey. She is co-founder of a multidisciplinary collective based in Turkey, where she also works as a researcher, freelance illustrator and junior graphic designer.  

She loves expressing herself through the language of sketching, which in her view often speak more than words. Serra fell in love with books and illustrations through the tales of La Fontaine.
