Violeta aka Viu

Children's illustrator and graphic designer

I’m Violeta, but people often call me Viu (bee-u). I am an illustrator and graphic designer currently based in sunny Barcelona.

Since I was old enough to hold a pencil with my hand, I have never stopped drawing. I’ve always had a passion for nice designs as well, for that reason, I ended studying graphic design at BAU, Escola Superior de Disseny in Barcelona, where I learned the fundamentals of design, later I specialized on Illustration at Escola JOSO, also in Barcelona.
I always apply my knowledge of both worlds in my work.

My main interest lies in children’s illustration and editorial illustration and design. I like to experiment with styles and techniques, this means I can be very versatile with my illustrations.

In my free time, I also like to work on personal projects and stay creative, go for a nice walk, collect illustrated books or listen to live music.

If you are interested in my work, have a project or if you just want to say hi, feel free to send me an email.
