Marisol Ortega is a first-generation Mexican-American designer, illustrator, and letterer living and working in Seattle, Washington. She is best known for her vibrant flora and fauna illustrations that play with texture, linework, bold color palettes, and organic shapes. She pulls inspiration from childhood memories of visiting her abuela’s home in Michoacán, Mexico, and the hikes she’s always grateful her well-meaning husband Rob makes her take. She’s also been known to “borrow” color palettes from the afternoon art dates with her seven-year-old daughter and art director, Ellie.
Past clients include Starbucks, Panera, FabFitFun, Sun Basket, Lush, Microsoft, Amazon, Compendium, Papyrus, Sir Kensington's and Real Simple Magazine.
