Roberta Zeta – Designer

An Italian illustrator in love with pencil & watercolors. My style is realistic yet modern, colorful, detailed yet fresh.

Overview

I am a hardworking and dedicated designer and illustrator, with a particular focus on Young Adults.

I'm passionate about fashion, lettering, portraiture and anything that conveys beauty into our life.

I believe the process of designing a great cover is all about collaboration, and I work closely with each author or publisher until everyone is happy with the outcome.


My work has been featured within "The New Vocabulary of Italian Fashion" at Milan's Triennale.

Clients include: HarperCollins, Mondadori, Mandarina Duck, Newton Compton, Amway, Skyscanner, Saatchi & Saatchi.


I speak Italian, English and French.

I can’t say enough about how great Roberta is to work with. Her work and design aesthetic is amazing but she also has such a strong grasp on the business and science behind book marketing. She’s also a great listener and has an empathetic approach to her work - the end result being a beautiful combination of her professional eye and what’s important to you as an author.
Roberta Z.
I simply loved working with Marilyn. She is gentle, respectful, open, aims for the best result, and her book is riveting. I was truly inspired by our collaboration and deeply enjoyed it.

Roberta worked so hard on a tight deadline and provided now a fourth incredible product to me! She is so kind, easy to work with, and can translate my thoughts into art with ease (and I have zero artistic ability).
Roberta Z.
I simply loved working with Kate. She is kind, talented, professional, clear, and her projects were so much fun!

Roberta created a book cover that was just exactly what I had in mind! And she was very responsive to questions and tweaks. I'll definitely come back to her for my next books.

I loved working with Nancy. She was very professional and kind. Her observations improved the project sensibly.
