My name is Riccardo Riggio and I’m an Italian art director focused on brand design and lettering. I’m in a passionate relationship with typography and pasta alla carbonara.
I create powerful identities to convey the values and intentions of your brand.
The focus of every project is surely on your brand’s needs solution, with a special interest to set up an unique storytelling and a strong aesthetic side.
I’m a freelance designer: I work independently with companies or private businesses, I also collaborate with others creative agencies on spot projects. After a personal life experience, I decided to set up a mission for my career, and on that I based my working approach. If you want to find out more, check this page.
The love for letters and visual expression led me to a graphic design high school, where I learned the fundamentals of communication and visual design. Then I specialized in an art direction academy, where I learned and improved my workflow, focusing on brand and identity design. Then I moved from Italy to Spain (Madrid) to attend a lettering and calligraphy course. I lived in Spain for a while: that experience opened my mind, and I came back to Italy with a new mindset and a new life and work philosophy. - I also studied copywriting. -
When I was a kid I had been forged by street culture. I grew up listening to hip-hop music on a skateboard, with a marker always in my pocket.
