I ended my education in December 2008 with a Master Degree in Graphic Design from the London College of Communication. This was the beginning of my new career: I had been a physiotherapist for over fifteen years in Sicily and after moving to London, while starting a family, studied to become a graphic designer.
From 2014 to 2020, I had been weekly designing “Londra Sera”, the newspaper of the Italian community in London that had run for more than 40 years and was really popular and loved.
Meanwhile, I have been working from home as a freelance graphic designer and I am experienced in designing posters, leaflets, booklets, stationary and websites.
My personal graphic style comes from my Italian aesthetic background where each element has meaning; uncluttered, direct and an effective use of colour. My interest in photography and drawing means there is always a strong visual presence on the page.
Very recently, I have started to volunteer for the charity ’Healthwatch’. This is the independent national champion for people using health and social care services in the UK. My role involves creating posts for social media, designing posters for events, stationary and advertising materials.
