Verified identity


Of Austrian and dalmatian descent I was born in Venice. I begun working as a professional illustrator and graphic designer for commercial brands. Then I switched to art direction and pursued a career as creative director in major international advertising agencies between Milan and Rome. This year I opened a new advertising shop based in Venice, FONDAMENTA, serving local and national clients. In 2013 I went back to my first love: editorial illustration, working in parallel with my advertising and graphic design activity. My work has won merit in 3x3 international illustration award, Prisma art prize and logos edizioni/Illustrati magazine contest. It could also be found in most of the Italian illustrator's association annual.
