Mauro Forlani

Freelance / Levi's® Footwear & Accessories

Bergamo, Italy
I'm a graphic designer with a strong passion for the illustration and his applications. i firmly believe these two things aim at the same point, which is mine too: give a shape, a body to an idea, make an abstract concept concrete (so, yes i'm mostly for the sketch-before-computer).
I've had the fortune to work with some really clever and sharp-minded persons and to build strong working-teams with them. This taught me a lot about working in team, even if little, with all his difficulties and the need to find always the best solution for the group rather than the single one.
Today i'm working at Levi's Footwear & Accessories in italy; here i take care of a lot of different things that have to be printed or published by several media all over the world.
Here we do the product shooting, all the image editing and the seasonal catalogs (linebooks and lookbooks); we work on the advertising too, on the packaging, on the events' invitations & materials, stuff such posters and special product displays for the stores; we also support the product designers with things such as artwork or textile designs and photomanipulation.
I try to always have some jobs to do, this allows me to build my illustration abilities, and also let me do something free and new, almost every time.
