Service: Visual Identity

"Vivai Carone never had a formal visual identity. I helped the client lay the foundations for their first-ever visual identity in forty years. The strategy was simple: Vivai Carone’s garden is both a visual and generous source of coloured flowers and ornamental plants, and it was very important to make this richness tangible."

Service: Art Direction

"With Bocconi Business&Arts and SLAM JAM exploring alternative ways to inform young students, I saw an opportunity to channel this forward-thinking spirit into a design project. I developed a dynamic visual identity and design system that adapts to each iteration of Collective Identities through an extended collection of shapes, layouts and a colour scheme. My goal was to give Bocconi Business&Arts design team flexible tools to experiment with while ensuring consistency among graphic elements."

Service: Brand Identity

"The client’s brief asked for an identity to encourage people to cycle more by highlighting the benefits a bike hire scheme can offer. By improving the user’s journey through online and offline touchpoints, our goal was to make people feel part of a collective change while creating engagement around a public, shared service. The identity had to be flexible, easy to work with, and strong enough to attract both city dwellers and tourists visiting one of the most advanced cities in Italy."

Service: Campaign Activation, Visual Identity

"The line between strategy and creativity has never been so blurred and Advertising Week can be a major opportunity for industry professionals to bridge this gap. Through our campaign, we wanted to show how Advertising Week can transform a strategist into a creative and vice versa. To activate this message, we envisioned a series of physical installations: separate entrances and elevators for creatives and strategists, a shared way out, personalized stickers and colour changing coffee cups."

The visual identity received a great deal of admiration from Rebecca Eaves, Advertising Week’s VP, Global Talent & Brand Developer.

Service: Graphic Design

"Once upon a time, the world was ruled by companies that controlled oil. Today, it is ruled by companies that own data. This data is becoming more and more intimate and we don’t even realize it. The campaign uses intimate data to challenge “white lies”, making the topic of data privacy and data’s intimacy more accessible for the readers."
