I am an Italian Visual Designer. Since 2007 I have a long beard and I wear black chunky glasses, so long before those were adopted as hipsters style.

I am mostly based in Turin, where I live with my wife Anna, our 2 daughters Tea & Lia, and our black and white frenchie dog Gutenberg (aka Gute).
Among my day job, I run a letterpress design studio and printshop (archiviotipografico.it), and also an artist's books publishing project (so-and-so.it).


I got a BA in Graphic Design at Politecnico of Turin and a MA in Visual Arts at IUAV University in Venice.
I design high-complexity websites and interactive interfaces, visual identities, stationary and wedding goods, magazines, font faces, and also books and magazines.
I am focused on concept-driven design, high quality typography and visual design research and experimentation in editorial design and non-digital interactive design.
