Giulia Lombardo

Giulia Lombardo - Designer

Florence, Italy

Freelance illustrator, specialized in children's books and enviroment design.

Overview

'I have worked in the publishing industry since 2014, making high quality art. I currently work for publishing houses like Usborne Publishing and White Star Kids as a children's illustrator and environment designer.

I love the process of illustrating a book from the first sketch to the final product. When I work on a book I see it grow while I take care of everything, face the unexpected and overcome a lot of obstacles in the best way I can. So, in the end, every book is like a child to me.

I always try to have a really sincere relation with my clients, it's important to talk a lot about what we want to create, so we can both have clear ideas in order to produce the best book we can.
