I focus on branding and graphic visuals, with a core sensibility to typedesign.

In three years since my graduation I've been working as a freelance designer for various advertising companies in Florence and Milan, and have then been for over a year a graphic designer for Gucci.

My work Napo&Leon has been selected by AWDA - Aiap Women in Design Award 2017, whereas Kitten illustrations have contributed to the Zetafonts selection by Print Magazine for the Typography & Lettering Awards 2016.

From July 2016 to July 2017 I worked for Gucci as a Graphic Designer and Art Director junior.
Within the company, I could increase and integrate my skills in photography direction and invitation design, developing attitude to teamwork and project management.


I graduated in Visual Communication at IED Firenze, with 110/110 cum laude.
