About me.

Barcelona-based Natalia Swarz (Cali, Colombia, 1993) designs & illustrates since 2010. She graduated in graphic design with a Masters Degree in Fashion management & Design.

Her work is a combination of print design, fashion illustration, creative storytelling and fashion branding. The whimsical attention to detail, dreamy color palettes & feminine - clean lines are part of her signature style. 

Her illustrations, typography and patterns have been used throughout Nylon Magazine, Zara, Mango & more.

Besides illustration and design, Natalia loves to work with branding and creative consulting, mainly for fashion or lifestyle brands.

 
 

There's more.

– Founder and Editor of Hôtel Weekend, a travel website made by creatives.

– Natalia is part of the creative partnership Some friends, a collaboration with fellow creatives where she works with branding, graphic design & website development.

 

"My best ideas come from memories, old French movies, art, music, & my mother and grandmother's style."
