Hi! I’m Alessio Longa, a graphic designer from Milan, I’m currently completing my training course at the New Academy of Fine Arts - NABA, in Milan, where I attend the Graphic Design & Art Direction course.
My biggest source of inspiration is the international typographic style of the 1950s, also called the Swiss school: it always strikes me in its rigor and in being balanced and clear.
Editorial graphics are also a source of inspiration for me, as they project me into a dimension in which the white space is no longer ‘empty’ but it becomes ‘cluttered’.
The style that I prefer, and that I try to apply as much as possible, plays on using fairly rigid grids, minimalism, leveraging the use of typography as a design and communication element.
