About me

With her witty and vibrant illustrations attracting a range of commissions, her digitalised drawings are perfect for the internet age. Informed by her upbringing in northeast Brazil and previous training in architecture, Marina’s style is bursting with experimental shape, pattern and composition, adding a computerised dimension to her once tropical surroundings. She is also co-founder and art director of In Shades Magazine, a weekly illustrated short fiction magazine. Marina has exhibited around the world, including in the Venice Biennale, and been awarded honours in Europe, the U.K., the U.S. and Latin America. Her clients include Google, Adidas, Sony, ASOS, Refinery29, Lenny Letter, Wired, and many others.

May 2013
  • Freelance
  • I am a London & Barcelona based designer working with illustration and image-making. My work is informed by studies in architecture & graphic design and is an exploration of movement, patterns, bold shapes and colour – always fed by my tropical upbringing in the northeast of Brazil. I'm always interested in hearing about opportunities, work enquiries, or even just a friendly chat. Say hello! :-)
