Catania, Sicily, Italy –
It takes a special talent to create simple branding. Vector art is the perfect platform for simplicity because it allows gifted designers like Antonio Calvino to use type and shape precisely and creatively.
His collection of logo volumes is a fantastic example of timeless branding. Something we all as designers should strive for. Well done Antonio:
29 year old graphic designer and illustrator Christian Mantovani has recently caught out attention with some really exciting pieces of art. His work is a melting pot of commercial, artistic and downright wild illustrations. We’re very pleased to have him aboard Anchorpoint and very curious about what this creative fellas has coming next.
Vectorvault seems to have a strong presence in Italy. That makes us very happy because Italy seems to be a hotbed for magnificent design these days. Perhaps it’s the robust distribution of classic art and architecture or the top notch design schools. Whatever it is, it’s the perfect combination that seems to produce some of the world’s most wonderful creators.
Italy – respect.
Maurizio Russo aka Mau Russo is an incredibly talented illustrator and graphic designer with a special imagination. His style was first noticed after he joined our Flickr group and began uploading some of his fantastic work. Here are a small handful of samples that we gathered from his online portfolio. We hope that you take a moment out of your day to learn more about him and his work. Drop him a line and let him know what you think.
Please forgive this poor translation: “Il Maurizio Russo l’aka Mau Russo è un illustratore incredibilmente dotato ed un graphic designer con un’immaginazione speciale. Il suo stile era dapprima notato dopo che ha unito il nostro gruppo di Flickr e ha iniziato a caricare alcuni del suo lavoro fantastico. Sono qui una manciata piccola di campioni che si siamo riuniti dal suo portafoglio in linea. Speriamo che lei porta un momento fuori del suo giorno a imparare più di lui ed il suo lavoro.”

Roberto Mattiucci (aka the_scientist) has been an active Anchorpoint member since March 2008. This 32 year old is an accomplished graphic designer and digital illustrator with a special knack for poster design and a flare for vector art. It is obvious that he a has a passion for great music and emerging bands. Most of his work is aligned with artists who seem to push boundaries off of the mainstream charts.
Italy has no shortage of mind blowing talent. Roberto is in good company with Anchorpoint members DolceQ, Alberto Seveso and Giulia Ballador. There seems to be a genuine appreciation for classic design with a sense of simplicity. This Italian community seems to feed off of each other’s talent.
Take a moment to visit Roberto’s site. He has many more examples that we are certain you will find inspiring. We’re honored to have his support of Vectorvault and hope that we can bring you more of his portfolio as it develops.
Sometimes with art, it is the absence of something that gives it substance. Italian illustrator Alberto Seveso has taken this notion to heart by developing a style that seems to let your imagination fill in the blanks.
His work has graced countless international magazines and given him the forum to explore the marriage between illustration and photography.
Take a moment to visit Alberto and let him know what you think about his work.
