Every single letter is an homage to female beauty. It is his only purpose, it helps him grow, it is the final measure to compare him with.

Find on these pages many of my typeface creations of the last three decades. Most of them are presented rather informally by screenshots that have been made during the process of design, a major number of them unfinished or never published.

Those typefaces include my work for the fabulous Stamperia Valdonega di Martino Mardersteig, many of them are closely connected to fashion corporate design projects which made me meet Luca Stoppini of Vogue Italy. Finally, others belong to artistic researches on my own.

Some are paired with images that had a huge influence on my creative point of view (which you may get to know closer visiting the Essays part). I do not own any rights on those pictures. They are presented here without any financial interest, merely for the purpose of describing better what drove my work and how forms develop starting from a photo shoot of a wonderful woman.
