After doing an interview with Rick Boer & Cynthia Veekens we were pointed out to Simone Ferraro. A young Italian graphic designer who’s work we have seen around a few times (especially the Assassin’s Creed fans 🙂 ). Sander contacted him to get a a bit of background information.
Tell us something about yourself. Who are you and where are you from?
My name is Simone Ferraro, I’m 17 years old and I’m a self-taught graphic and editorial designer based in Italy. I’m also a gamer, movie watcher and TV series addicted. I LOVE Doctor Who.
What started the passion of graphic design?
A friend started using photoshop and I rapidly followed him in this awesome journey back in 2008 when I was only 12. But the real start was back in 2010 when I really decided to approach this world as I was growing up and I really wanted to make the difference.
What kind of projects have you been working on?
I been working on various project since I’ve started. Web-series, magazines, videogames fanart and of course personal projects, that I believe are the most beloved ones because there are no boundaries and strict deadlines whatsoever. And it’s a total relief.
You are also a gamer and movie watcher, do you only use these subjects in your work?
I usually want to be as more open-minded as possible , so yes, I use various subjects in my works. In the last period I’m increasing my skills in compositing and car retouching…Who know what’s waiting for me next!
You are most proud on the designs of:
I’m proud of the majority of them, but principally I am every time I learn new skills and techniques. To be honest I am mostly proud of my latest designs such as my latest collaboration with Rick Boer and Merdahn at Gamescom 2014. To see more of my latest work check out my Behance portfolio here.
The biggest achievement for the future would be?
What a great question….I’m going to study graphic design in London next year, so my biggest wish would be working in a great London design company…THAT’S ALL I WANT….for now!
We wish Simone all the best with his future careers and look forward in seeing his work expand across the world.
