I’ve been working as a freelance in London since 2012; I’ve worked with small/medium size brands and start-ups from around the world, New York, London and Milan primarily, but also from the rest of Italy and Hong Kong.
My strengths lie in creative thinking and art direction within collaborative and self-initiated projects. I do things, and I keep on doing things all the time, it’s a motto. #matteodoingthings really sums it up!
I think by drawing. I draw anything, effectively producing every artwork, font and design from beginning to end. I love drawing letters. Self-taught at first, and later professionally trained, it is my greatest passion and what makes me happy.
Since a year I’ve been based in Como, Italy, where I grow a vegetable patch and I continue my work as a freelance art-director and designer for clients in the fields of education, electronic music and social architecture. Read Less

I'm a typographer & designer, experimenting by doing, I create artworks with clients and develop personal projects to experiment the concept of practice, and multimedia communication.
Making an artwork is, at times, something personal; to focus most of your days on a project, crafting it and shaping it and seeing it succeed, its a feeling both the client and the designer share, or rather, must because of their shared interest in doing it.
An interest in doing, doing new things, testing, learning, making, to find the best way for the job because ultimately, with all the chaos, what else is there to do? As Yoda said:  “Do. Or do not. There is no try.”  Read Less
