“Comes up with amazing solutions, takes advice and comments like a pro”

Margarita's approach to creative work is straight-forward: listens carefully to the assignment, comes up with amazing solutions, takes advice and comments like a pro, and still has that wink of her own style in everything she does. I am eager for another opportunity to work with her, and highly recommend her for any artistic endeavor.

— Len Small, Art Director Tablet Magazine/ Nextbook Press

“Enthusiastic, knowledgeable, flexible and dedicated”

Margarita was great to work with, enthusiastic, knowledgeable, flexible and dedicated to her project. I strongly recommend Margarita.

Surrealism is destructive, but it destroys only what it considers to be shackles limiting our vision.

Margarita Korol is an artist, writer, and social scientist specializing in user experience design, writing and publishing content, and launching social enterprises.

After earning her Master of Fine Arts in Design for Social Innovation at New York City’s School of Visual Arts in 2016 (and previous to this a Bachelor of Science in Anthropology at Loyola University Chicago in 2008, Magna Cum Laude), she launched AdaptLab Filmmakers, a neurodiverse social enterprise developed in partnership with the Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan’s Jack and Shirley Silver Center for Special Needs. Under her leadership, this venture has created opportunities for a growing number of filmmakers with autism to occupy leadership roles on a creative team as well as to learn remote freelancing techniques. 

Professionally, Margarita resembles a combination of TV characters: quirky detective Columbo with her diligent and creative research methods, city editor Lou Grant with her stubborn commitment to professional best practices, and marvelous comedian Midge Maisel with her witty fresh writing and communication deliverables. 

She brings to the table a flavorful professional background, seasoned by the industries of marketing, publishing, retail, and nonprofit. 

Favorite acronym:
SROI (social return on investment)
