nice to meet you! I am a new york based designer with a passion for ornament and bespoke typography.
Born in Milan into a family of jewelry designers, I developed a love for calligraphy and art at an early age and started my formal training by studying architecture and industrial design at the Liceo Artistico Bruno Munari in Crema, Italy. After a brief period living in Japan, I relocated to New York City and obtained an MFA in Communications Design from the Pratt Institute.
I'm currently the senior designer at Louise Fili Ltd, where I joyfully create quintessentially Italian, historically-inspired design and lettering every day.
Outside of graphic design, I'm passionate about decorative arts, old crafts, and modern interiors. I'm also the proud co-parent of a rescued racing greyhound named Cooper (yes, he's on Instagram). I can be paid in bubble tea, as long as it's vegan.
If you're interested in having me come and give a talk or workshop at your conference, school, or studio, I'd love to hear from you! Please get in touch by using the form below and let's make this happen.
