I am self-employed as a graphic designer, specialising in the fields of corporate identity (logo) design, web design, print design and branding with the majority of my time spent designing and implementing marketing promotions for businesses such as logos, websites, letterhead, business cards, packaging, printed materials of various type, billboards and more.
In January 2000, after completing my studies in Perugia (Italy) I moved to Bologna (Italy), to begin full time work at Herald Direct, a well established direct marketing agency specialising in media strategy, design & advertising below the line.
After my experience at Herald, in 2001 I made an important experience as graphic designer at Molly&Partners, a strategic design agency, where I improved my design skills and my knowledge of typography and professional printing techniques.
In 2002 I founded Happy Factory design studio, where I worked as a self-employed designer and illustrator for final clients and advertising agencies. In 7 years I created many advertising campaigns and directed all the steps of the creativity process.
In 2007 I moved in Rome where I worked as editorial senior designer at Formiche, a monthly magazine about politics and economy. There I directed the design staff and set the style and look of the magazine creating page templates, illustrations and cover designs.
In 2009 I worked as a teacher at InMetodo Formazione, an Italian professional school, where I taught the courses on advertising technique, Flash animation and web design. There I received from Adobe the ACE (Adobe Certified Expert) certification.
My latest experiences were in Barcelona, Spain, where I collaborated as art director and creative designer on projects for national and international companies creating brand identity, online presence, off-line communication and audiovisual productions.
I'm currently working as a freelance art director for clients all over the world.
I hold a Bachelor of Visual Communication and Advertising Techniques from The University of Perugia, Italy, with a rank of 28/30 with a design project of advertising below the line as a thesis. Then I followed a master in graphic design at the Italian Accademia di Belle Arti and a master in web design. After more than 16 years of digging in the graphic design world, I’ve had a multitude of experience, gaining my first freelance design job at the age of 28 – since then I have never turned back…
My life is design, I love it and I surround myself in it every day.
