Bella Johansson is a designer and visual artist based in Naarm, Australia, with a practice that flows between the visual and tangible, her interest lies in the intersection of display and experience; a space where the emergence of narrative is aided by design. Outcomes usually begin with a research-driven approach, often involving the study of archives, mapping and visual language. 

    Bella has been engaged on projects for editors, makers, directors, designers and institutions, working under the name Somehow Studios since 2014. The studio direction aims to engage commissioners, clients and collaborators in a process that not only communicates who they are but clarifies what they are. 
Engaging in process with an open curiosity and ever-evolving intrigue, that manifests in a multitude of possibilities.
Bella acknowledges the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung and the Dja Dja Wurrung as the Traditional Owners of the country where she lives and works, and pays respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, acknowledging their ancestors and Elders, who are part of the longest continuing culture in the world.
