I’m a creative soul, proud introvert (I’d say it’s a super power to be honest), coffee drinker, sunset chaser and puppy lover!
I'm so glad you are here! I’m Ida Fia, but you can call me Ida. I'm a self-taught graphic designer and photographer based in Ystad, Sweden.
In 2013, I was contacted by two brothers who had written a book. The book was a charity project and they were looking for someone to design it for them and asked me if I had any experience designing books. I did not.
However, Pippi Longstocking was my biggest inspiration when I was little and she once said "I’ve never tried that before, so I think I should definitely be able to do that."
Sooo, I said "I've no idea how to design a book, but I'm all in." (fist bump)
And little did I know what this collaboration would lead to... (smirk emoji)
We worked back and forth for months. Who knew it could take that long to design a book! But, it was worth all the hard work. The book turned out to be a master piece.
The book was called Breaking Out of a Broken System and was written by Seth and Chandler Bolt and was launched on march 4th 2014. All the profit from the book went directly to the organization OneWorld Health that provides health care in developing countries.
Later that year, Chandler started Self-Publishing School, and brought me on as a their in-house designer. I got a few book design requests and I found myself really enjoying designing books! In 2015 I started designing books full time and I've since then designed over 350+ books! How crazy bananas is that?
