Trying to solve problems in an original but efficient way
Took part in: 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018
I started in 2009.
Really I don’t remember the exact moment: probably during my childhood, through those old books I found out one day, in the ancient house where I used to spend summer vacation.
At CFP Bauer School, Milano. The school still organises courses about typographt and letterpress in its beautiful workshop.
Lucio Passerini and my friends at Officina Tipografica Novepunti: they teach me something every day.
To stop time.
I prefer to alternate the situations: firstly design alone, then confrontation with others, then alone again etc. etc. But i really like to finish the process together.
Maybe when I am under pressure.
I’d like to be reborn in the line spacing between an Akzidenz Grotesk title and a Baskerville subtitle
Books, tobacco and Google’s researches.
Critica portatile al Visual Design, by Riccardo Falcinelli, and the Truman Capote’s Complete Works.
With Jan Tschichold I guess, even if I’m quite sure he will kick me in the ass in no more than two weeks.
My shop is Officina Novepunti, so a bunch of old but reliable machines, good typefaces, dust and knick-knacks.
Maybe the location: just a little bit closer to my house.
During LPW International Summit, obviously!
Wasting time and precious moments
Maybe the fact I really try to solve problems in an original but efficient way.
Reading and writing emails, designing on my computer, looking for interesting opportunities, sketching on paper, consulting books, tracing funny and often useless to-do lists.
Not really, but I’m very interested in the form of books, so I’m quite interested in bookbinding, pop ups books and paper design.
