Olimpia Zagnoli, born in Reggio Emilia, at six moves to Milan, where she attends classical high school and later graduates from the European Institute Of Design.

Her career begins during the following year, 2008, when her illustrations are published on Italian and international newspapers such as Il Sole 24 Ore and The New Yorker. Zagnoli, who draws as much from Futurism as from the Beatles, creates a personal style made of soft shapes and saturated colors.

Olimpia's figures are in fact shaped by essential and geometric lines, that meet flat and bright backgrounds.

A chromatic proficiency, nourished with the observation of the great masters of graphic design and art, and then accurately re-elaborated into a personal visual language. The result is a fresh and essential work, with simple images able to communicate and represent a concept.

Her editorial collaborations include those for The New York Times, Vanity Fair, Apartamento, La Repubblica, Taschen. She illustrated children's books titled The World Belongs To You, Mister Horizontal & Miss Vertical and her own interpretation of the classic The Wizard Of Oz.

Her lively images were the setting for the campaigns of brands such as Google, Barilla, Air France and Fiat. She recently collaborated with the fashion world, working with Fendi, Prada, Hermès and Marella.
