Margherita Buzzi – Designer

Graphic designer who’s favorite game is to play with typography, hierarchy and the merging of images and text. Specialized in non-fiction.


When designing a book, I love playing with grids, typography and images, to create connection between pages and sections. I am excellent at collecting material, organizing it and giving it a form, always striving to obtain simplicity and elegance, while possibly surprising the client, the reader and myself.

I think working collaboratively with the client is essential to the design process, starting from the original concept all the way to refining the smallest details and selecting print finishing.

I specialise in non-fiction, reports, photography books, books about architecture and book covers. I also love designing children books.

My experiences include freelancing for Chronicle Books, volunteering as a book designer for 826 Valencia, working with first time authors and supporting smaller realities, such as non-profits and architecture studios, and their editorial needs.

The languages I can work with are English, Italian, Spanish and German.

In choosing a designer for my poetry book, I was hoping to find a professional with artistic taste, technical competence, and perhaps most important, ideas/opinions. I feel Margherita has demonstrated all three categories in our collaboration. Margherita came to the project when it already had illustrations and a design framework, but she brought her own taste, typography sensibility, and ideas...

I used Margherita's design skill on my first-ever published book of poetry and short essays. My original request stated that I wanted a cover that looked "smart, professional and fabulous." With Margherita's help, I got all three. She managed beautifully all my quirky instincts, and was fun to work with.
