What I do
I transform your organisation’s messages and stories into sleek and attractive visual communications tools for print and web dissemination. Thanks to my extensive experience with high-level clients, the transition from idea to final product is a smooth and enjoyable process even when managed remotely. My graphic design expertise include infographics, brochures, booklets, posters, logotypes, newsletters, social media micro-content and reports.
I started my career working at one of the 5 most visited websites in Italy, the one associated to the popular reality-show “The Big Brother”, when 56k modems were the norm. Over the years I have helped several United Nations agencies, NGOs and corporations managing their on-line contents and presence as well as created institutional websites. WordPress and Joomla are my weapons of choice to get your stories out to the world.
Armed only with my cameras and the curiosity to know the world in depth, I have documented earthquakes, transgenderism, sex workers, extreme poverty and religious rites all over Asia and the Caucasus. Now photography, documentary or event-related, is one of the tools I put at your service to tell the stories that your audience needs to see.
VIDEO & ANIMATION
They say an image is worth a thousand words, so what about a video? I have scripted, directed, shot and edited video stories for clients of the caliber of UNDP and Swiss Cooperation as well as produced animations for web and social media dissemination.
STRATEGIC COMMUNICATIONS & PR
I have the opportunity and luck to work on several EU-focused lobbying and information campaigns. I have experience in press-release, web articles and reports writing.
I believe that sharing one’s knowledge and skills enriches both the trainer and the trainee. This is why over the years I have occasionally accepted to hold trainings for selected groups about different topics at any level of proficiency: Information Visualisation, Web Content Management, Graphic Design, etc.
