I am Gilma, a freelance

graphic designer/illustrator

living & working in

Gothenburg, Sweden

Thanks for stopping by my portfolio!


My name is Gilma Sobrino, I am a graphic designer, illustrator and owner of the company Gilmalu Design.

I am always willing to step away from ”ordinary” design, depending on the purpose of the assignment.

Theory is always the foundation, of which my work is build on.

I believe, this reinforces the work and helps to design ethically.
