Olga Timmer is zowel een persoon als studionaam.

Ik, Olga, werk aan illustraties en grafische vormgeving. Vaak voor maatschappelijk betrokken organisaties. De studio is te vinden in Slotervaart bij de Ru Pare Community, Chris Lebeaustraat 4, lokaal 2.11.

Ik richt mij op het vertalen van verhalen naar beeld. Beeld als in grafische vormgeving, illustratie of door middel van fotografie zodat de boodschap door een bredere groep gelezen en begrepen wordt.

Mijn doel is om bruggen te slaan, de communicatie te versterken en een persoon of organisatie in zijn kracht te zetten met beelden. Ik zet me op die manier in voor verbinding en samenwerking zowel in mijn eigen buurt, Amsterdam, Slotervaart als daar buiten.
