Once upon a time over a rozé fröccs in a little ruin pub in Budapest three friends had a big idea, and Magpie was born. Our mission is to paint a new perspective for illustration by connecting exceptional artists from Eastern Europe with writers, publishers and all those ingenious minds who’d like to see their story come to life in a unique way. We are here to show you something new, to bristle your imagination, to give you goosebumps! Now go ahead, just scroll down and let us steal your heart!

Barbara has been in the illustration industry for over 10+ years. After graduating at the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design Budapest as an animation film director she started to work as an art director/ director for commercials, short films and animated series. She got to travel all around the world with different projects, building strong connections in the industry. She had the opportunity to work with clients such as Disney Junior, Penguin Workshop, Simon and Schuster and TED- Ed. As a full time artist her dream was always to help other artists to evolve. At Magpie she is helping our artists developing their portfolio, she is looking for new talents to be introduced to the international art world, and she is helping our clients finding the perfect artist for their project.
