Milan based illustrator Olimpia Zagnoli has a zest for creating fun and colorful illustrations that are thoughtful in their approach and execution. Inspired by illustrators from Spain and France, as well as Italian illustrator Bruno Munari, Olimpia creates a style all her own, melding modern simplicity with bursts of color and fanciful shapes and lines.
Last November, Olimpia presented a small talk with AIGA NY, chatting about her design background and major influences. Lucky for us, a condensed version of this talk is available online, narrated by the artist herself. In addition to creating intricate illustrations, Olimpia has also been experimenting with superb hand drawn type. To see more of her work, visit her website. Also, be sure to visit Olimpia’s blog for inspiring and often humorous drawings from her everyday adventures.
I Miss NY prints are available in her Society6 shop.
