Creative Skills

I'm a hard worker with high ambitions. I always try to give the best of myself and use every opportunity to challenge and improve my creative skills.


Bringing fresh perspective to your brand, this is what I live for! Attracted by minimal and contemporary design style, I love to create clean, smart and effective works that inspire people. Diverse design skills set allow me to work in multiple areas of my field though I see myself specialized in Graphic & Editorial Design as well as Branding & Illustration.

Web Design

Web is everywhere... I see Internet as a free zone where I can let my creativity express itself without any limitations. Combining aesthetic designs and subtle details to innovative interfaces, I desire to provide affordable, high-quality, user-friendly & responsive professional website or emailing to individuals and companies.

Advertising & Print

Developing new and appropriate visual solutions to complex communications problems, I have a full understanding of digital print production as well as a thorough knowledge of typography, space, image and color. I also use my marketing skills to generate strong creative ideas & layouts and determine the strategy and goals for an advertising campaign, raise awareness of a product or build a strong brand.

Digital Art

Using technology to make my artwork come alive, I’ve been focusing my education on traditional art techniques and skills as well as studying History of Art & Archaeology. I’ve acquired a solid background and gain knowledge in art history, drawing, illustration, color, composition, figure drawing, painting, digital art and photography. Along with my extensive experience in graphic design, I've become an innovative solution-provider.

  • I have been working as a Lead Graphic Designer for LightWave 3D Group (an American 3D software company) since 2012. In 2015, I expanded my skills to copywriting, creating contents such as newsletters, artist interviews & press releases. 2012 - 2018

Other Skills

Planning, analyzing and presenting ideas efficiently in order to create visual solutions to communications problems: these are also my main skills.

Time Management

Delivering high-quality products for clients is what matters, but also meeting deadlines and manage projects efficiently. Effective planning and organization are some really important components. Through the years, I have learned how to react, organize and plan my work to solve problems and provide the best possible solution.

Communication & Languages

The ability to communicate is fundamental to everything a designer does. Articulating my ideas and concepts as well as writing well organized briefs, proposals and instructions are also one of my main skills. Additionally, I’m a French graphic designer living in Italy since 2010. I learned English, Italian and Spanish at school and I worked 5 years for an American company based in Los Angeles.

Marketing & Social Media

Through the years, I’ve developed and managed online marketing campaigns for the LightWave 3D Group, driving brand awareness, engagement and traffic to social media pages. I’ve built social media posts, advertising and promotions across social media platforms and blogs. I’m also using social networks to share experiences, express my point of view about Design and showcase my works.


I have a strong experience using all the Adobe Creative Suite CC products: Photoshop / Lightroom / Illustrator / InDesign / Dreamweaver / Fireworks / After Effects / Animate & Mobile Device Packaging / Acrobat. I can work on Windows or Mac operating systems. I also have a full experience in Blogging platforms such as WordPress, Tumblr and Blogger as well as in Google Analytics.
