Claudia Dagostino – Designer

✧ Italian book designer and digital illustrator working on books about art, haute cuisine, coffee table and other non-fiction. ✧


Ciao! I’m Claudia, I love books and I love making books. This passion always leads me to take care of every little detail of each editorial project that I face. I like to really understand the author's tone of voice, the topic, the purpose of the book, the target and how the contents have been structured. I am very keen on the readability of texts and the navigability of subjects, content is king, but still having and eye for ornament and colors. I don’t like to follow trends, I prefer to base my graphic design on the contents of the book, at their service, combining structure and research, in order to obtain a funcional and timeless result.

Can't wait to know about your book project!

I am also a digital illustrator. I’ve worked for newsletters, academic research projects, websites, indipendent and online magazines. Mine is a flexible style, adaptable to different audiences. I like to use few well-matched colors and pay close attention to shapes and composition.
