Overview

Angela Navarra is a graphic designer/illustrator whose clients include Scholastic Books, Simon & Schuster, Nickelodeon, Disney, Harper Collins, My Style Network and more. She has received recognition in major publications such as Print Magazine and Communication Arts. Angela graduated from the School of Visual Arts in New York City with a Bachelor's of Fine Arts. She is a 1980s child, born in the swamp lands of Secaucus, New Jersey. Having grown up immersed in Italian culture, she has a deep fascination for the eccentric and bizarre. You will rarely run into her without a camera, sketch book, homemade snack bars and a plan for an upcoming road trip. She is psychotically passionate about typography and revels in any opportunity she gets to use her hand-lettering skills.

When she isn’t working she enjoys pasta making, yoga, imitating her cat, singing in cars, using the word “ninja” as a verb and traveling to new places.
