Nolii Wallpaper: Meet Martyna Makes

Apr 28, 2022 by Nolii Team

Tell us about yourself and what you do for a living.

I am a South London based illustrator and graphic designer. I like to think that I translate words and ideas into visual formats to pay my bills. I was born in Poland and spent a good chunk of my childhood there before moving to the UK, so my influences are quite mixed.

How did you become an illustrator and graphic designer?

I have always been super into making things. Throughout school Art was my favourite subject, so of course, I wanted to push on and surround my daily life with it, in one way or another. I studied Graphic Design at UCA and graduated in 2019. Working for myself was definitely an unexpected turn of events due to the pandemic, but it’s been very fulfilling, full of learning curves as well as meeting and being able to work with great people.

What type of work do you do and where can we buy them?

My personal work focuses on highlighting the mundane parts of our days, unnoticed or undiscovered situations. I take things that I personally relate to and amplify them to a more universal audience. I currently stock greeting cards that I made with the idea in mind that you shouldn’t have to have a specific occasion to give someone a sweet message on a piece of paper. I am also currently working on a new print collection called “Fruit Fortunes” which will hopefully be out mid-May 2022.

Where do you get your inspiration for your work?

Visually I like to get inspiration from furniture, archives of ephemera and cartoons. And my ideas can come from overheard conversations - my partner saying really obscure things that then become inside jokes and I also really like to indulge in walking down a grocery store aisle and looking at product packaging.

Tell us about your creative process?

List of ideas, sketches, listen to a podcast, roughs, more lists, artwork, revisions - done.
Or something along those lines.

When you are stuck for ideas, what do you do to unleash your creativity?

I think this can totally change month to month. I either force myself into making, move onto another project for a while or stop, get outside and clean my brain out.

What Nolii products do you have & what do you like about them?

I’ve got the Nolii Loop Cable and as someone that spends probably too much time at their desk with lots of cables, books and loose pieces of paper, it’s good to know that at least my phone cable is consistently stable and there for me.

Talk to us about #TechItEasy means to you?

To me #TechItEasy is about tech working with us not against us. We are surrounded by so much noise, tech should give us the tools to streamline our day to day and keep it simple.
