Hello Fabio. We'd like to know more about you. Can you tell us more about yourself?

I studied architecture, graduated, but ultimately I preferred remaining sticky to the job I started doing by self taught: graphic design. got my first job at 19, now I'm 39 and in the middle I've gone through magazines, corporate identity, illustration, font design, photography and even some video and motion graphics design. I work part time for apple and the rest of the week I take care of my studio: most of my activity comes from graphic design, photography and live video performances for gigs.

You are an Architect. What made you pursue design and illustration?

architecture and graphic design are probably two different sides of the same discipline: both are a matter of problem solving, just in visual terms. while an artist has the skills to express his ideas, the designer has the ability to bend those skills to express other people's ideas. I've gone for graphic design probably because I need to call the product completely mine, which is a quite impossible task in architecture.

In your experience, what were there moments that you have struggled or had difficulty in coming up with a concept? How did you overcome/cope?

really depends on context: maybe sometimes I just need to focus on something else because my brain is still working in background or sometimes I just did not work enough so I need to throw away what I've done and start over.

Who are your influences, if any?

randomly: Art Nouveau, Dave McKean, Japanese Comics and illustrators, Norman Rockwell, Juan Gimenez, graphic design of central and northern europe, Jan Saudek, symbolism, the pre-raphaelites (specially Waterhouse).. and for sure I'm forgetting someone...

Do you see yourself more as a photographer or as a designer?

I see myself as a visual artist: photography is a tool like any other and probably I have no favorite one, I choose depending on context and communication needs. if I was good enough, I'd rather prefer producing borderlight as oil paintings ;-)
