Carta 
Array of 24 rectangles

designed in Cad

a vector graphics software,
2017. 



Almost every day I design and publish geometric and rhythmic compositions under a public domain licence.  All the files are in a scalable vector format and available upon request.
















A vector geometry is made of lines with both direction and magnitude.
It can be translated into an equation. I then define a number of parameters and dimensions to encode the geometry in a generative process. Everyone can obtain multiple instances changing some values from a mathematical archetype which I defined in the vector file. The uniqueness of these instances is due to a digital setup made by users. The commonality of the instances is due to the existence of a common origin. 
I then select, arrange and print some subjects to explore the limits of the technology in a physical environment.

Forte San Briccio 

Brand design for the San Briccio Fort, near Verona, Italy, 2018

Concept: The associations  involved for the valorization of an impressive architectural building are many and heterogeneous.

The concept of visual synthesis was taken from the "Opus poligonalis". The stones that build the fortress are all different. It is from the right interlocking between them and from an ancient construction process that the structure emerges. Strength comes from diversity.

Ecogriddy

The new Ecogriddy ’s brand has been developed following two guidelines: data transmission and mathematical precision. This design represents a grid made of waves transmitting data in all directions. The overlapping waves generate new shapes, becoming the module of the whole project. The new Ecogriddy “E” has been carved out.
This process has been used to develop the new Ecogriddy ’s grammar of forms made of icons, shapes and logos. The new icon is made in five variants.
2016



Process 
1 you start from a wave
2 you cross two waves 
3 then four 
4 then you have a grid and a shape
