Identity and special project for ArtDate, a contemporary art event organized by The Blank.
Identity for “Fiato Ai Libri”, a reading festival that takes place every year in Bergamo.
Atelier La Vague makes handmade knitted accessories for babies.
We designed the visual identity based on the keyword « vague » which means « wave » in French.
Identity for Teatro Donizetti’s 2016 Lyric Opera Season, natural development for what we’ve done in 2015, based on the reinterpretation of the theater’s historical posters. The baroque frames of the old posters are stripped down to a simple rectangle with a single ornament on the top right corner. To represent each opera, we matched them with corresponding heraldic symbols: a chinese dragon for the Turandot, a lion rampant for the Lucia di Lammermoor, a camellia for La Traviata, as the opera is set in France, and so on. The font we used is Elisir Compressed, a custom version of Bodoni specially made for the Lyric Season. We also worked on a series of itinerant events throughout the city, designing a site-specific way-finding system.
RUOTE FIERE makes unique motorcycles on customers’ commission. “Fiere” is the Italian word for both “proud” and “wild beast”. The identity is based on a panther (a wild beast), used also for the neon sign hanging outside the studio. Ruote Fiere is a project by designer and bike-customizer Davide Caforio.

We designed the identity and all related print and promotional materials for GAMeC.
GAMeC is the only Contemporary Art Museum in Bergamo. It opened its doors back in 1991, inside the walls of a former monastery and later an army station as an extension of Pinacoteca Carrara.
GAMeC curators asked us to keep the original logo and use their institutional color, red. We used this limitations as the basis of the project: red and black plus a very strong grid system. We chose a contemporary, yet classic typeface such as Lars by Bold Decisions in order to convey the idea of a “conservative” renovation.
We designed posters, billboards, booklets and a wayfinding system.
Identity for Nascondino World Championship, annual event organized by CTRL Magazine in Italy.
“Nascondino” is the Italian word for hide and seek. In collaboration with photographers Marco Bellini and Linda Alborghetti, we produced the campaign shots, inspired by the concept of hiding, using a limited color palette. We decided to use the same three colors also for the hiding spots placed on the hide and seek playground.
Identity for Carib, a monthly Jamaican Cinema and Music night.
Curated by Davide Giannella, illustrations by Yuri Kaban.
Corporate identity for Teatro Donizetti’s 2015 Lyric Opera Season, commissioned by director Francesco Micheli.
The identity aimed at a contrast with traditional stereotypes of lyric’s imagery.
We decided to use flat illustrations and bold typography in order to match the opera with current pop culture.

When The Blank’s team asked us to re-design their visual identity, we started off from the very concept of “blank space”.
Our chosen typography plays around with empty blocks, represented by rectangular shapes, that complete texts in several different, ever changing ways. Then came the logo, represented by their initials followed by two “blank” rectangles.
