Hello, I'm a freelance illustrator, graphic and web designer based in Italy.
I've great experience in the boardgame industry with several different games already published for wich I've done all the graphics AND illustrations:
Leader1:hell of the north, Swordfish, Wild, Lupin the IIIrd espansione, Lamborghini the official Race Game, Il gioco dei telefilm, Palio di Siena, Knights, Yang-tze, Rendezvous),
And other titles that are about to be published, for several editors (Ghenos Games, Giochi Uniti, Gotha Games), for example RACE!.

I'm both a freehand illustrator and a professional graphic and web designer, so I can move from concept ideas to final product, packaging, advertising and also web marketing, with ease.
you can see my complete gallery:

I know several 3D SOFTWARES (Modo 601, Maya, Zbrush, 3DS Max, Rhynoceros), and I can produce models for prototypation and production of playing pieces (example).

I'm also a roleplaying and boardgame designer and have a game already published this autumn, Al Rashid wich has been ranked #6 at Essen Fair , and Space Commander that will be published probably 2014 by Gotha Games.
I'm good at inventing new narrative story lines, characters, stories, and original ambientations, and I've already created tons of ambientations, creature ideas (entire races), and original cultures, so I can contribute a lot of ideas for new games/stories/expansions.

- Graphic design: I've more than 12 years of experience, I've worked on brand identities, logos, packaging, advertising, fairs, store interior design, professional catalogues and so on.
