Additional Information and Interests

Eidos Design was the name of my own agency in Italy for business related visual
Being self-employed, my duties varied from customer management to proper graphic
design and web development, developing in this way both a basic undestanding of the
overall issues related to new media communication and a range of some specialized
skills like corporate image development and web interface design. In particular, I have
matured direct experience in creating and dealing with companies’ visual identity, from
market research to actual logo creation, product branding, photo editing and
manipulation. Also, I have designed, built and kept up-to-date for two years some
companies’ web sites. During these years though, I have been developing far more for
web related projects than press related ones, which have been limited to PDFs
production (particularly web site to pdf conversion), some brochures and flyers. At
present, my web site contains only a partial portfolio.
