‘The breeze of the sea is something that makes me really calm down, that’s why water and wind are one of my most inspirations. Sick of the plastic and other trash that’s floating in the sea…I am finding my way into the next economy, searching for new solutions on graphic design. For this reason, planet earth and human rights are really important elements to keep in mind while designing.’

Graphic & Conceptual Designer

 “It’s all about the numbers. I don’t care about the circumstances, as long as we get enough money.”

This quote by a former employer I worked with was my ultimate wake up call. I never felt my responsibility stronger as a designer to contribute to a better world.

My mission is to make people aware of the consequences of consumerism. I want to be innovative on the field of branding and sustainability. For this reason, working with honest brands and companies only is a real must.’

An example is the publicationBorn by publicity, Killed by publicity”. In this small book, I juxtapose the narcissistic selfie driven glamour culture and the ordeals in the producing factories have to suffer.
