About me

IMG_0636 copiaHello, my name is Marta Tranquilli, and I’m an illustrator.

I divide my time between my hometown of Milan and Reggio Emilia, where I live now.

I started out as a freelance illustrator in 2010, immediately after graduating from the Istituto Europeo di Design (European Design Institute – IED). I stayed in Milan for four years, working from my apartment and getting involved in numerous projects as an illustrator and designer, ranging from interactive design and educational illustration to producing animated videos and graphic facilitation.

In 2014, I moved to Reggio Emilia, a city an hour and a half’s drive away from Milan, and I am now based at Officine Gattaglio, a shared space with other freelancers.

I am always working on several projects simultaneously. I specialise in illustration for children, work as a graphic facilitator and, alongside Giacomo Manzotti, produce animated videos for businesses.

I find new clients and new projects through word of mouth and thanks to the network of professional relationships I have built up over the years. I am also sometimes contacted directly online.

My clients include Fabbri, Mondadori Education, Pearson, Piccola Casa Editrice, Studio Base 2, Accenture, Area Stream, LabNext, Mai-Tai, Senesi Design, Equipe Design Grupe, TopLife Concierge, Challenge Network, Be-side, Warrant Training CS PMI, Amicucci Formazione and many more…
