BAKA is one of our favorite designers but it's very hard to find out much about her. She has some cool stuff for sale on her shop, and her designs and logos are used by DJs and other artists all over the world but there are no about pages or online reports. We tried to get some more information about this enigmatic artist via an email interview, and you can now read it below, along with a selection of work which we have conveniently placed in between the interview questions and answers. Keep scrolling because there are more images at the end.
