Diramazioni

Diramazioni is a two creatives team based in Milan. We are two illustrators/designers, partners in work and life and also collaborate on the same illustration combining our vision and skills.
“Diramazioni” comes from the following concept: through the possible ideas, stratification of thoughts and branches of colors you can reach a recollection.

This is why we consider different projects and like to create something which is visually and conceptually coherent with our clients need and our personal quality- philosophy and visual feeling.
We have developed our visual experience using various media and mixing drawing/painting/material techniques with digital ones as photography and photoshop.
We primarly are illustrators, and as freelancers illustration is the part of our activity we want to focus on mostly. Nevertheless we are working on commission in different creative and visual projects both in illustration and graphic design.
We also currently have been art directors of Edizioni XII (independent italian publisher). We recently have illustrated the Pop-up book “The illustrated Edgar Allan Poe” (cover and interior illustrations).
Some of our clients:
Horace Kidman Communication Agency, Edizioni XII, Quarto books publishing (UK)/ Canterbury Classics, Bononia University Press, IBC magazine, Le Théatre de Laval, Erca SpA and Wolf Italia, Avantgarde Music…
