Home » About


Vanja Kragulj received her Bachelor of Design in 2006 from the Alberta College of Art & Design in Calgary, Alberta, Canada where she lives with her husband and son. Vanja specializes in art licensing, illustration and surface design for the children’s industry. In 2007 she developed ZOO BABIES, an independent children’s products brand, which she continues to work on today.

Vanja’s illustrations are largely influenced by her graphic design background and therefore always incorporate a strong sense of color, composition and pattern. Her characters are known for their naïve and quirky nature and by their untraditional color palette.

Aside from the children’s industry, Vanja has also worked in the fashion industry, children’s publishing, web design, print and the greeting card industry. She aspires to one day have a successful brand of children’s products and live by the sea.
