The power of design first struck Milla growing up in the Communist era of Poland. The Underground Solidarity movement inspired her to join the scout group, where she actively contributed the skills of creativity towards her country’s freedom. This early work planted the seed of viewing design as a means of communication.
Kicilinska is an exceedingly self-driven and enthusiastic creative who emits positive energy and loves to collaborate. She finds joy in motivating, inspiring, and mentoring others. Milla is a team player and enjoys working closely with other creatives and learning new skills. This very reason brought her back to school even though she had established a successful design industry career. Kicilinska has always been a self-learner and thrives on problem-solving, often figuring things out on her own. As a creative, she has a passion for minimalist aesthetics.
As a hobby, Milla fully volunteers in the book and editorial designs for Diamond Way Press, independently handling the process from beginning to end, designing the publications, collaborating with translators and editors worldwide, and providing front-to-end design and art direction on a worldwide scale.
