Hiya!

about

Throughout my career, I have always tried to ensure that the passion and enthusiasm for my work has shone through.
Despite my success as an independent designer, I have found that it is through a team that I have achieved my greatest potential.
I have learnt that having a platform to question and further ideas harnesses greater creativity - although realizing creative inspiration doesn’t come without its obstacles! Obstacles such as time management and working to tight deadlines are important in any industry, but the foundations and biggest challenges of Design lie in communication.
In all my work, I have relished these challenges and used them to fuel my ambition and maintain my own high standards.

I am a complete social animal. Find my work on Behance. Visit my LinkedIn profile and read my articles.

technical skills

As a graphic designer, I fled from a traditional path and explored my creativity, trough trying my hands on various techniques and software. Software is more than just a tool, and I try to dig deep into it. Today, I knack for critical thinking, empathy and creativity to create viable and impactful solutions using these technologies.

LinkedIn recommendations
    • James Costantini, Operations Manager

      Alessio started to work in our company as a young promising designer with still a lot of experience to gain as developer. After less than one year he turned his fields of interest into tangible skills and showed to be an indipendent officer capable to run a department under his own guidance .I've really appreciated the diposability he had when we passed through overwork periods and outstanding re-organizations. That and not only makes him to be a serious professional with managerial skills.
    • Alessandro Giuntini, Junior Graphic Designer

      Alessio is one of the most talented persons I have ever worked with during my career. Just give him a working computer and he can give life to everything you imagine! His expertise in Graphic Design is impressive also considering his young age, making him the perfect choice for employers looking for young talents and for employer who demand already a full command of the subject as well. It has been a pleasure and an honour to have such a master in my brief experience as Graphic Designer and Web Developer! The only thing I think Alessio needs is just more self-confidence, which I am 100% sure he will gain in the next years when he will be praised for his works and will achieve great results in the Design field. Having Alessio in your team means to have an impeccable professional and a respectful and polite person, someone you can rely on at 100%.
