Joanna Kuczek Joanna Kuczek Founder + Creative Director

Hello I’m the Founder, Creative Director and Designer of Milk Bar Design, a design agency in the NYC area where my team and I strive to make strategic design magic everyday for our clients.

I have over 14 years of hands-on design experience working with digital agencies like Big Spaceship in Brooklyn, to small design boutiques and large corporations like Johnson & Johnson – ranging from hospitality, tech, wellness and non-profit. I have helped clients launch and grow their businesses, raise million’s of dollars in funding, open restaurants and effectively sell their products and services.

I have earned a Master’s Degree in Design and Entrepreneurship from The School of Visual Arts in NYC and a BFA in Graphic Design from Rutgers University. I am a proud recipient of Martha Stewart’s American Made Elevator Pitch Competition award for my self-initiated work on Krasula Pierogi Bar. Born in Poland I proudly serve as a pierogi ambassador. My favorite pierogi recipe is spicy sausage and kale in a whole wheat dough served with perfectly golden shallots. If you’re interested in collaborating or just want to say hello, I’d love to hear from you.
