Marta Dec - Designer

Gdańsk, Polska

I am a graphic designer and illustrator creating eye-catching designs and elegant layouts for both fiction and non-fiction books.

Overview

I'm a graphic designer and illustrator specializing in book design. I create book covers and interior book layouts, focusing on both miniscule details and the "big picture". I've been improving my skills since I was a teenager, slowly, but steadily working on remaking childhood dreams into creative, well though-out works. I love the combination of words and images and I'm constantly looking for new, fresh, better ways of making my ideas take shape. Currently, I'm working as a freelancer, finishing my BA in Scandinavian Studies and plan to start studying Animation and Digital Art in Norway next semester.
