Luciano Sormani
is a versatile and dedicated designer. He sees every design project as a challenge that he approaches with enthusiasm and pragmatism. Luciano was born in Resistencia, Argentina in 1975. After graduating from High School he decided on a career in art but soon found out that as much as he liked fine arts, a career in that field was not for him. instead, he focused his creative energy on a career in creative writing and graphic design. He combined a daytime job in retail with various free-lance projects for ten years, before deciding to get a formal education in Graphic Design at South Hills School of Business & Technology, in State College PA. His passions include art, photography, architecture, and music. He speaks five languages and loves watching movies, cooking and painting, as well as spending time with his husband and their two dogs, Hunter and Tebow
