Eclectic, curious, perfectionist. Climber, traveller, tv shows and movies addicted. Loves geometric shapes, contrasts and stunning ideas.
Born in San Benedetto del Tronto, a small city by the Adriatic Sea, where I lived until the age of 18. Then spent 4 years studying Communication and semiotics between Italy and Spain while working as graphic designer freelance.
In 2009 I moved to Milan to attend an Art direction master at the Accademia di Comunicazione. In 2010 After an internship at GreyUnited, I joined DLV BBDO, where I worked for the agency’s main clients.
In 2013, with the Gatorade campaign ‘The Social Trainers’, we got the higher prizes at NC awards and at IAB Mixx. The same year I started working with the fashion brand Goldenpoint, for which I directed some fashion films.
In 2014, with Giulia Zoavo created ‘The emoji redesign project’. We were the first to design a set of emoticons with a new style and the project has given rise to some articles all over the world.
In 2015 I worked on the idea and the design of the app #SponsoredByGatorade that won several Italians and internationals awards.
In December 2015, I moved to BBDO Rome where I won the pitch for the Mercedes-Benz Vans account.
