Born in Milan into a family of jewelry designers, I 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.

Prior to going freelance, I worked at Mucca Design, Penguin Random House, and, most recently, as the senior designer at Louise Fili Ltd.  

I recently started a passion project called Fauxsaics—a series of travel-inspired, typographic mosaic illustrations—which has since been featured on a variety of design sites and blogs including the ADC/The One Club blog. DesignTAXI, Abduzeedo, and Designboom. See the entire series here or follow along on Instagram

Outside of graphic design, I'm passionate about decorative arts, old crafts, and modern interiors (with the occasional DIY thrown in there). I'm also the proud co-parent of a rescued racing greyhound named Cooper (yes, he's on Instagram).

Select clients · Target, PepsiCo, The Village Voice, Airbnb, Knopf, Penguin Random House, the Hillary Clinton Campaign, BBDO, Vanity Fair, Print Matazine, Abrams, Simon & Schuster, Landor, Southern Living, the School of Visual Arts, the Pratt Institute.
