My name is Francesco Zorzi, I am an Italian illustrator and visual designer,
in love with materials and the tactility of things.

Born in Italy and educated at the Design School of Politecnico di Milano and
at the AHO University, The Oslo School of Architecture and Design in Norway,
I graduated with an MA degree in Product Design in 2011, in Milan.

Since 2012 I moved to The Netherlands, working as Design Assistant
and Senior Designer for Studio Formafantasma.

Since 2015 I collaborate and freelance for Studio Formafantasma, working on the edge
between objects and images, design and illustrations, while at the same time pushing forward
my own personal research in the fields of Illustration and visual design.

In 2015 No-Rocket is born, the place where all my personal research, ideas and passions
meet up and take off.




________________________________________________________________





No-Rocket is an experimental platform for large- scale research,
working on a broad range of projects including drawing, illustration, painting,
lettering and logo making, graphic design & image identity, three-dimensional installations,
publishing and a lot of other stuff.

No-Rocket creates fresh and playful as well as intelligent as focused visual works,
always appropriate to the context.

Always trying to have a 'hands-on' approach, No-Rocket prefers pencils to keyboards,
paint to color palettes, brushes to buttons, paper and scissors to copy-paste.

When I was a kid, the only thing that I wanted was to draw and to be a scientist.

One day me and my best friend decided to build a rocket and sent it into space.
So we took a plastic bottle, stuffed it with a piece of cloth soaked in alcohol and then fixed it on the garden fence.

When I was a kid, the only thing that I wanted was to draw and to be a scientist.

One day me and my best friend decided to build a rocket and sent it into space.
So we took a plastic bottle, stuffed it with a piece of cloth soaked in alcohol and then fixed it on the garden fence.

Obviously it was a disaster.
The rocket never took off, it just burned down completely whith its plastic melting down on the fence.

That day it was very clear to me that I would never become a scientist, so I thought
‘Alright then I would just draw.’
In that precise moment I decided that whatever I would do, I would never stop drawing.

Ever since then many things happened in between, I studied Product Design and I fell in love also with objects,
the stories they tell, colors and the materiality of things. But I never stopped drawing and doing illustrations.

No-Rocket brings all these elements together, with a special interest
in whatever happens on the edges and in the gap between them.

Watching the world with the same kid’s eyes, when i was a scientist, but keeping it simple.

It's no rocket science.

It’s just No-Rocket.
