About me

ART DIRECTOR & COMMUNICATION DESIGNER I design visual communication projects: visual identities, projects for events and brands. I like type and details. They always make a difference. Connecting the dots is my motto. — PROJECTS Creator of “Epilepsy? Cut it out!”, a fundraising and communication campaign on surgery for epilepsy. [ ☛ www.diamociuntaglio.info & www.bonfire.com/cut-it-out/ ] Co-organizer of Kerning Conference, an international conference on typography that takes place every year in Faenza. Could a type enthusiast miss such an opportunity? No! [ ☛ www.kerning.it ] Creator of “Letterpress is better”. Because letterpress is still alive and makes a great impression. [ ☛ www.letterpressisbetter.com ] Creator of T(ype)Shirt, a line of t-shirts dedicated to type. [ ☛ bonfire.com/store/ilpiac/ ] — Online I’m ilpiac. ☛ Have a look at my portfolio! — QUOTES “What matters in this life is not what we do but what we do for others, the legacy we leave and the imprint we make.” — Eric Meyer “Designers are responsible for the work they put into the world. [...] The work you bring into the world is your legacy. It will putative you. And it will speak for you.” — Mike Monteiro — #artdirector #brand #identity #visual #communication #graphic #designer #creative #director #graphics #adv #advertising #visualdesign #identitydesign #printdesign #communicationdesign #branddesign #graphicdesign #branding
