Mangata is a set of 5 luxury apartments on the island of Gran Canaria. They are unique for their detailed decoration inspired by the romanticism of summer, the African landscape and the Atlantic beach aesthetic. Mangata is a Swedish word, since tourism in this area is mostly Swedish, and it means “reflection of the moon in the water”. The branding illustration is inspired by the literal translation and includes a cactus as it is a typical plant of the desert south of the island.
Jil is the definition of a slow artist who takes your thoughts to another branding “level”. She knows how to transform the vibe physically, including all the small details making possible the first step of your dream: “your identity”. The development process is quite easy with her because she knows how to listen and caught your feelings giving you so much comfort in the brainstorming, sharing lots of ideas and I really get impressed about the hand drawing illustration before the digital work. Jil and her creativity is really a self expression of consciousness with commitment that offers true identity.
Working with Jil for the branding of Grace Molan Studios was the best decision ever. Despite not knowing what I wanted, Jil’s intuition and expert knowledge enabled her to create a beautiful brand concept and designs that perfectly transmit my brand values and aesthetic. I could not be happier with the end result.
The intellect behind our artwork Tropia Art, has been superb behind the scenes. Nailing our visions each and every time. We cant thank her enough!

A passion for history and a respect for artistic techniques honed over generations underpins everything that we do at Tajmi. Okay, and we’ll admit it—we’re a sucker for leopards, too. That’s why when we connected with artist Jil-Laura Kloberg of Tropia —first on Instagram and later in-person in Barcelona —it felt like kismet.
Since I discovered Tropa Art, I had no doubt that she would be the one to design the Branding for our brand. I wanted an original design, with personality and that has a connection with the environment of our apartments that we offer. Jil-Laura captured everything directly and captured it in one of the most special illustrations. The creation process was very easy, she quickly adapted to my requests and the communication with her was fantastic. I loved the final result from the first moment, without a doubt I would count on her again for any other project.

Working with Jil Laura was an obvious choice the moment I saw her artistry. She builds the mood of your brand, tells your story with her skills, and walks you through the execution. She speaks perfect English, which was essential for me, but was also able to connect me to all the right people locally with her Spanish. Jil Laura went above and beyond in many ways and I’m so happy with the final product. Professional, yes, but also warm and responsive. If you’re looking to elevate your message, look no further. No basic branding need apply!
