Marta Ignerska is a graphic designer and illustrator. Born in 1978, she is considered one of the most skilled graphic artists of her generation. She designs and illustrates books for children and adults and her work has garnered numerous prestigious awards.

Ignerska has illustrated books for many publishers in Poland.

One of the most lauded books Ignerska has illustrated — "Wszystko Gra" (Playing Everything) . The text was written by Anna Czerwińska-Rydel. "Wszystko Gra" was named "Book of the Year" by the Polish section of IBBY (the International Board on Books for Young People) and picked up a string of accolades, including the prestigious Bologna Regazzi Award for Non-Fiction, a competition which has been run for many years by the Bologna Children’s Book Fair and an event of great significance for publishers. Some the of the most beautiful children’s books from all over the world are entered in this competition. An international jury assesses (above all) the graphic and editorial quality of a each publication.


Almost none of the scores of books illustrated by Ignerska have gone unnoticed.

Besides children’s literature, Ignerska’s work can also be found in a number of Polish newspapers and magazines.

Marta Ignerska also exhibits her work in Poland and abroad. In 2013, her work was featured at the Exhibitions of Polish Illustration in Berlin and Milan as part of the "Must have from Poland" exhibition. A large number of Ignerska’s works have been purchased by the Małopolska Modern Art Foundation.
