I’m Maria Larsson, an artist, illustrator and surface pattern designer from Stockholm. Helping clients telling stories with eye catching images and patterns for their products, apparel, magazines or actually anything, is a big part of what I do. Commissioned work is mostly digital and my favourite friends are Illustrator, Procreate and Affinity Designer. My style is often adapted to the art of the briefs but when diving into personal projects the fascination of repeat patterns and nature is clearly visible! Graduating as a ceramicist my eye is constantly drawn to shapes and proportions and designing beautiful everyday objects will always be my big passion.
Never stopped being profoundly inspired by nature although I unfortunately seem to be terribly allergic to parts of it! Also suffering from arachnophobia – I freak out if I meet something with eight legs (all other numbers of legs or lack thereof are totally fine!) and this put my childhood dreams of a life in the jungle, following in the steps of Jane Goodall, to an abrupt halt… but here I am, still inspired by the beauty of nature and ready for new adventures…

Maria Larsson has a clear understanding of the visual identity of our publication. Over the years, Maria has created more than three hundred illustrations for the journal, in cooperation with our medical authors and researchers. Meticulous, always on time and constantly looking to exceed her client’s expectations, Maria makes the difference. She is a pleasure to work with!

As the brand designer of DAY&ME Stockholm I collaborated with Maria and Do illustration! developing our very first ecological baby and toddler collection. She added valuable creative ideas to the project that we were able to implement and was very professional during the design process. I would definitely love us to work together again!
