My name is Ruggero, I know it’s unpronounceable if you speak just english. I’m Italian, 31 years old, living in Toronto.
From a very young age I was inspired by art in all its forms. After the Art School Diploma in Ferrara, my hometown in Italy, I got knocked into the Graphic and Web Design world. I expanded my experience working as a freelance and hired in large and small agencies in many cities, fitting into different realities, doing always my best.
From a few years I decided to focus more into my real passion, Photography, and make this a full-time job.
I developed a strong experience connected to the customers expectations and an exceptional attention to details across a variety of mediums in both the analogue and digital realm.
Run multiple projects per day, plan, organise, have each day new goals to achieve, find the best creative solution that inspire me and satisfies the customers, these things are the fuel to reach the happiness in my line of work.
I’ve never been afraid to change, I started from print & typography in 2007 until, in 2014, I decided to throw myself into the Web Design context, studying the HTML and CSS coding, learning how to build websites, how the SEO fundamentals works and the Social Media strategies. After spending six month studying in the Cappellari Institute, I started my career as a Freelance, overcoming every adversity on my own, finding new clients and collaborations with whom I’ve made amazing connections and working relationships.
During my life I also explored illustration, painting, photography and video editing. I’m also a music expert, an art lover, a swimmer and last but not least a completely in love hubby.

He don’t exclusively execute the assignments, instead, he’s very propositive when the game is to exchange ideas and find solutions. He have a great taste for different art disciplines, especially in photography, a skill that in webdesign is an extremely helpful bonus.”

“I had the pleasure of having Ruggero in my team for several years in 77Agency, where he was great in filling the role of senior web designer. When we hired him, he had already a long experience from different clients industries and type of activities, such as web design, social media and graphic design.
He’s an hard working and committed designer, detail oriented and very patient. It was nice to work with such a pleasant colleague. Ruggero would be an excellent asset to any team, bringing creativity, value and professionalism.”
“I met Ruggero, who was very young, just graduated with no work experience and a great desire to learn and become good at what he did. He has great creativity and organisational skills. He worked and tried to get to know as much as possible. In a short time he managed to be a very good 360 ° graphic designer and creative.
In my subsequent work experiences as Art Director in advertising agencies, I still asked for Ruggero, and his great skills, because with him I knew I could do excellent jobs. It was an honor for me to have been a mentor, to have taught him a job and introduced him to the world of visual graphics, the rest was all thanks to him. If I still need a valid partner, my choice would always fall on Ruggero.”
