Odds Graphic is home to Valentina Brasili, an Italian graphic and editorial designer based in Barcelona, Spain. Her portfolio lists each project in a vertical orientation — almost like books placed on a bookshelf — and switches to a horizontal orientation on mobile.


The bottom part of the homepage uses a two-column grid and sticky scroll in keeping one half the screen scrollable, as the rest stays in place. There’s also a custom cursor that adds a unique personal touch.
