Marco Oggian

Marco Oggian, born and raised in Italy, spent nine years working on over 150 different projects with 300 or more drafts. He spent a lot of time working and managed to get published in more than 20 books about design, branding, illustration, typography and photography. During this time he has lived and worked in Milano, Berlin, LA, A Coruña (where he’s living right now) and several South American countries. Also, exhibiting in Paris, Barcelona, Berlin, London, Seoul and Tokyo.

Marco has wanted to be illustrator since he was just a little kid. Describing his style as “simple, strong, a five-year-old could do better”, it seems that a lot of that energy has stayed with him. Although most children don’t quite have Marco’s client base, there’s definitely more than a touch of the playful to the Italian illustrator’s colourful approach. But his simple shapes and bright colours are often deployed to highlight more serious issues.

He had the pleasure to collaborate with a lot if interesting people all around the world including brands such Nike, Mozilla Firefox, Bershka, Holstee, Computer Arts Magazine, Pull&Bear, Meyba Barcelona, Volcom, BMW, Brekka Headwear, YrStore UK, Shred Optics, Fanatic Snowboards, Drake Snowboards, Northwave boots, CreativeDa Korea and OXYDO Eyewear.
