German-born illustrator Hanna Barczyk creates conceptual illustrations for major publications such as The New York Times, The New Yorker and The Economist. She has worked with advertising clients such as Apple and Facebook (Meta) and recently illustrated a children’s book with The Museum of Modern Art (The MoMA). A graduate of Ontario College of Art and Design University, with a bachelor’s degree from the Toronto School of Art, her passion for dance, movement and music is evident in the flowing shapes she employs to create bold yet delicate illustrative design. Traveling and working between NYC, Toronto and Montréal, Barczyk holds a mirror up to any place she finds herself in, creating work that is both personal and political.
Barczyk’s work has been recognized by the Society of Illustrators, American Illustration, Communication Arts “Award of Excellence”, Society of News Design, Creative Quarterly and 3 X 3 (magazine of contemporary illustration).
