Pocko Face

Pocko Lab & Marco Oggian

Marco’s recent exhibition ‘100’ at the Pocko Gallery in London has been immortalised in the form of an interactive app that allows you to create your own character in Marco Oggian’s Style. You can download the app now, free of charge.

With a multitude of options for hair, accessories, clothes, and more you can let your imagination run wild creating fun and unique characters to share with your friends, all inspired by Marco’s Exhibition ‘100’.

The idea behind ‘100’ was to represent one hundred iconic people whilst still maintaining the same base, the same eyes and the same mouth, treating the elements with simple geometric figures, making them recognisable only through the details and the colors which render them unique.

The project allows us to understand how our experience, age and education directs us to recognise one figure over another and above all, it forces us to realise how the small details make everyone unique but in reality, we are all the same too.

Behind the scenes

Pocko Face is the beginning of a multidisciplinary project by Marco Oggian that explores the relationships between the digital and analog world.

Marco’s character’s are based on the same round shape for the head as well as his signature pair of eyes, both aspects which remain constant in all designs. However it is the colours, accessories and details that define the differences between all the characters. Have a look at his gif below for a little insight into the design process.


I developed the app simultaneously with the exhibition. I wanted the project to be accessible to all people, of all ages and cultures. I wanted anyone to be able to play with my illustrations, creating their own. – Marco Oggian

With Pocko Face you can create your own character and share it with friends and on the social network, inviting other people doing the same, creating a world of beautiful people different in small and big details but with the same unique soul. – Marco Oggian

The Exhibition

One Hundred Stories, One Face: Marco Oggian’s portraits of iconic people using the same face at the Pocko Gallery during the summer of 2018.

There’s Hitler with his tiny moustache and his pathetic smidge of hair to Frida Kahlo with her iconic flowers and red lipstick. Each portrait, in Marco’s usually energetic and playful style, instantly jumps out at us and reveals the portrayed character. – Katy Cowan – Creative Boom
