I’m an Italian-born, Brooklyn-based freelance illustrator.
After several years spent working as a graphic designer in Italy (BBDO, Milano Film Festival, Cosebelle Magazine) in 2016 I quit my full time job to pursue my passion for illustration. One year later I started collaborating with Sagmeister & Walsh and moved to New York.
Now I work with international agencies and companies as well as independent firms, magazines and small clients, creating illustrations, icons and graphics. Inspired by diversity, childhood memories and pop culture, my works come in a geometric and humorous style, with a particular attention to details and concepts – and a hint of cuteness.
