Amanda Mocci

Graphic Designer & Illustrator

Montreal, Quebec, Canada
I have always been fascinated by three major creative fields: Graphic Design, Illustration, and photography. After completing my DEC at Dawson College I went on to refined my graphic design skills UQAM. This is where I fell in love with book and magazine design. I've always been influenced by simplicity and functionality.

I started taking Illustration more seriously after completing my bachelor's when I discovered my love for portraits. I soon adopted it as a career along side graphic design; the two worked well together. Self taught and constantly experimenting with new traditional mediums and techniques, I like to challenge myself with different subjects. I now create traditional pieces as well as editorial illustrations.
