While I’ve gracefully accepted the fact graphic design is not a skill I possess, if I was ever to foray into that world, Matteo Gualandris’ work would definitely be the standard I’d like to reach. When it comes to sophisticated, clean and modern design, this guy is as slick as they come.
Matteo’s portfolio is a quick lesson in how to do a poster, book layout or brand identity in a way that exudes real knowledge and skill. His work is understated yet striking, with real clarity and ease. The uncomplicated nature of his work demonstrates his abilities perfectly as we all know the idea of “less is more” is far harder to achieve than “use every idea we’ve ever had.”
The simple colour palettes, bold lines and sparse compositions are indicative of a designer who knows what they’re good at. And I for one am happy to let Matteo carry on doing his thing.
