Overview

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 and book covers. I also love designing children books.

My experience includes freelancing for Chronicle Books, volunteering as a book designer for 826 Valencia 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.

I enjoyed the process of creative interaction with Margherita. Effective back and forth. Her responses were always timely and constructive. Appreciated her creative input and ideas. Very pleased with end product. we confused ourselves with the offering process with USD vs EURO. This was resolved amicably.
