Ioanna entered the world of yachting in the 90s, and it was not long before she booked her first client. Driven by her inquisitive personality and passion for design, she took on a personal challenge to give a yacht an aesthetic makeover. This marked the beginning of her newfound and fast-paced career within superyacht design.

One of her first projects, The Double shot, became a finalist in the 2012 World Superyacht Awards, and also nominated her for the Newcomer of the Year Award. She was responsible for the interior, but also made some significant changes to the exterior of the yacht. One of her innovative designs was creating large openable windows on both sides of the yacht. This put Ioanna in the spotlight, and since then she has worked on several new projects, most notably Double shot II.
