LUCA DI SABATINO art director

Brilliant creative thinker.

Talent, passion, experience, leadership and strong attention to details. This is how I do Graphic Design.

Born into a family with a strong inclination towards the arts, I developed a flair for creativity from an early age. I was still in high school when I discovered a passion for graphic design, cinema and photography and I was not even sixteen when I began training as a photographer’s assistant. The experience gave me a great initial insight into the world of advertising and I began to create layouts and illustrations for various communication agencies. In the meantime, I continued my studies and a few years later I graduated in Set Design from the Academy of Fine Arts. My desire to explore the endless possibilities offered by graphic design programs like Painter, Illustrator and Photoshop has inspired me to experiment and grow as a graphic designer, never forgetting my early passion for free-hand drawing. Working for leading Italian, European, American and Japanese companies, I have been given the chance to advance professionally and to switch from creating illustrations to storyboarding, concept designing, toy designing, brand designing, UI designing, art direction and creative direction. I’m ambitious, determined and flexible, always eager to learn, unafraid to offer and receive suggestions. I believe that my passion for design, combined with my determination and my technical and interpersonal skills would make me a valuable addition to companies and advertising agency.
