CALLIGRAPHY / LETTERING / WRITTEN LETTERS / WORDS                             

Calligraphy is the starting point to look at the world with new eyes, looking for new ways melting styles, philosophies, culture, food, art and experience in a personal way.

All about calligraphy

Since 1995 I work as a professional calligrapher for private people, advertising and communications agencies, for schools as a calligraphic teacher and as an artist.
We can use calligraphy in many ways, but every time it's a new project, born thanks to help and passion of good clients.


Logotypes and lettering 标志

Logotypes and lettering 标志

Since 1995 I worked as a graphic designer and I am happy that I was asked mostly for logotypes and trademarks, for me the best job in the world. In a little sign you can find the history of a product, of a brand or of a group of people. Sometimes there are generations of people behind a company and a logo. Understanding, interpreting and represent those values il like an amazing travel.

- written letters for advertising
