Graphic Designer

Curriculum & info

Intrigued by the world of design and driven by the desire to learn, in 2012 I decided to undertake university studies in Communication Design at the Academy of Fine Arts in Naples. After the three-year degree I continued my studies with a master's degree in Graphic Design for Public Communication, concluded with a thesis about the book and the experimental typography, presented at the WE AIAP event held in Milan in November 2018. In 2015 I participated in the national design competition "Scenari di Innovazione 11", organized by Artex, presenting a cardboard loom that won the 2nd prize and was presented at the 29th edition of Futuro Remoto in Naples. In 2018 I designed the wayfinding for the Certosa di San Martino, whose installation was finalized in July 2019. I won of the second edition of the competition "I libri-gioco si fanno con le macchine", launched by the association Ts'ai Lun 105, thanks to which I did an internship at Cartotecnica Montebello (Vicenza) in early 2019. During my university career I started in parallel my working career, both as a freelancer and as an intern, working with some communication agencies. During my experiences I have acquired good teamwork skills and built positive relationships. I consider myself a flexible, motivated and curious person, with a strong desire to perfect myself day after day and to increase my professional and cultural background.

I graduated in Graphic Design at the Academy of Fine Arts in Naples, with a mark of 110 cum laude and praise from the commission. During my professional career at communication agencies I gained experience in brand identity, logo design, packaging, layout.

In 2015 I designed a cardboard loom, in collaboration with Marco De Luca, which was presented at the national design competition "Scenari di Innovazione 11", organized by Artex. The project won the 2nd prize and was presented at the 29th edition of Futuro Remoto in Naples. I am particularly passionate about product design in the paper industry, thanks also to the internship at Cartotecnica Montebello (Vicenza), leader in the book-game market.

During the preparatory research for the writing of my specialist thesis entitled "The forms of book. Experimental and unconventional typography" I had the opportunity to treat at 360° the unconventional typography and book design. From this research, I made the project "Experimental novel: La Scomparsa di Patò", presented at the WE AIAP event. I won the second edition of the competition "The game-books are made with machines", launched by the association Ts'ai Lun 105, thanks to which I did an internship at Cartotecnica Montebello (Vicenza). After the internship I realized the book game "First books with wires". Both my projects have been selected for the exhibition at the Oggetto Libro 2020 festival.

In the last few years I've also become passionate about motion graphics and I made the music video "Luna" by Geiro taking care of every aspect, from concept to animation.
