Portfolio of the Week - Monica Serrano

Illustration and Information graphics from a young talented designer

May 4, 2015

After featuring Manuel Cabrera’s portfolio, a couple o weeks ago, we come back with another Malofiej 23 speaker. Today, we’d like to present you the work of the talented Monica Serrano, a Spanish designer and illustrator currently based in Washington D.C.

Born in Cadiz in 1986, Monica is specialized in information design. She studied at the Visual Art Institute of Jerez, where she graduated in 2008. She worked in the infographics department of “Diario de Cadiz” and “Público” (Spain), and since 2012 she has been working as a freelance, collaborating with “Corriere della Sera” in Italy, “Courrier International” in France, “El Pais Semanal” in Spain, “La Nación” from Argentina and the publishing house McGraw-Hill, among others. She has also taught infographic design at Istituto Europeo del Design (IED).

At Malofiej 23, Monica’s talk “Of Duty and Beauty“, was an interesting depiction of the challenges visual journalists working as freelancers face in today’s news market, having to adjust to different audiences, formats and editorial guidelines. You’ll see below the some of the works Monica used in her talk, and a few extra ones that she kindly sent us:
