An update on the life of Dori

Portrait of Dorota Pankowska Hi guys.
I've been a bit quiet lately! You might have gotten some blurbs into my life by following my tweets, but other than that I'd like to fill you in.

In late 2015 I moved to Paris for a new job. Moving abroad alone to a country whose language you don't speak isn't easy!

To read a bit about the experience, check out this interview from earlier this year on Format Magazine titled Why This Art Director Moved To Paris.

Paris was a lot of different things! The culture shock was way bigger than I expected. There were ups and downs, some things that I loved, many things that I hated. All in all, I had a lot of experiences that I'll hold dear to me. But you might have noticed I didn't do a lot of creative projects while I was there. There are many factors that contributed to that, and in the end I decided to follow my desire of wanting to return to Toronto to catch up on some personal projects while taking a break from a real job.

So that's what I did. I've been back in Canada since May, and getting settled into a whole new life all over again took a lot of energy, but I feel as though I'm finally catching up to where I want to be.

So here's to new beginnings (yet again!).
