My name is Martina Galarza, aka Marte (maar-tay).
I'm a Latin American Graphic Designer and Lettering Artist, inspired by 90's cartoons, graffiti, 60s psychedelia, and candy packaging from my childhood. I'm all about infusing fun and vibrancy into my designs, creating a perfect blend of nostalgia and contemporary cool.

I’ve been working freelance for 8 years in the music and entertainment industry collaborating with artists like Paul McCartney and Red Hot Chili Peppers and brands like Adobe, Nickelodeon, and YouTube.

Born and raised in Argentina, now based in NYC, a city that I'm deeply fascinated by. I studied graphic design at the University of Buenos Aires, and learnt Lettering from legends like Ken Barber and Jim Parkinson at Cooper Union and Guille Vizzari in Argentina.
