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

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
