Giovanni Da Re is a freelance illustrator based in Ancona Area, Italy. From 1997 – 2001 he studied illustration at Istituto Europeo di Design (IED). Straight after graduating Da Re began his freelance journey. Comfortable in multiple style, he creates artwork for editorial, young adult books and textbooks, adapting to suit the audience. His editorial work is frequently published and selected for Communication Arts, Creative Quarterly, and 3×3 magazine.
Da Re’s illustrations are created intirely digitally. His strength of colour selection is something that really stands out when looking through his portfolio. His colour palettes are very harmonious, but often exploit complimentary colours to draw the users focus. I also like when he exagerats the angles of his characters and backgrounds, adding interest and a touch of quirk.
