Hi, I am Graży – the face behind ILLUS | ICONS | INFOGRAPHICS

I am a cross-border illustrator, designer and visual artist, Diplom Designer and Master of Art from the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw, currently based in Cologne. I specialize in infographics, illustrated information, and captivating maps. With over 15 years experience, I’ve collaborated with diverse clients, including the United Nations University, Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit, Sparkasse Köln Bonn, Kölner Verkehrsbetriebe, DuMont Verlag, Institut für Qualität und Wirtschaftlichkeit im Gesundheitswesen, and more.

My passion lies in transforming data and facts into visually compelling narratives. I am dedicated to creating impactful pictograms and illustrating complex concepts, with a keen focus on matters related to the environment, society, and climate.

Rooted in my academic background and extensive experience, I approach each project by first sketching on paper, infusing traditional methods with modern digital techniques. Whether crafting vector drawings with Adobe Illustrator or indulging in intuitive drawing with Procreate for illustrated maps, my goal is to bring a unique and artistic perspective to every visual endeavor.

Explore my painter portfolio, Grażyna Ostrowska, to gain further insight into my creative endeavors. Additionally, visit my online shop ATELIER GO where I offer Fine Art prints of my illustrated maps 🙂

Looking forward to the opportunity to collaborate and bring your ideas to life!


Frau Ostrowska arbeitet schnell, ihre kreative Umsetzung komplexer Grafikwünsche ist ideenreich, erfrischend und mutig.
