Creative Ilenia Zito, based in beautiful Palermo, Italy, creates pastel-colored illustrations of fleeting moments and precious memories. She illustrates the world around her through rose-tinted glasses with strong, stunning women at center stage. Working for both commercial clients, as well as on personal projects, Zito’s style is recognizable and welcoming. Scrolling through her Instagram feed feels like a window to someone’s life, as each illustration could be a snapshot from any stylish gen-z or millennial women’s life. Posing in that new pink dress, lounging by the pool with all your girlfriends, or making those pancakes on a sunny Sunday morning. All Instagram worthy – all illustration worthy.

With women on center stage, Ilenia Zito celebrates the small things in a harmonious earthy color palette
Zito’s eye for composition and layout feels fresh and somewhat familiar from fashion photography. Almost all her work centers on women in everyday situations, with repeating similarities between the works. How she repeats the floral pattern on dresses or clothing feels delightfully charming, while the series of women eating or with food brings a smile to anyone’s face. Harmonious color palettes, thoughtful details, and the feeling of “hey I’ve been that girl” makes you fall in love with Zito’s work.
