The Designer behind the IMPACT Illustration
Lorenzo is a well known Italian designer who combines his passion for graphic design with my fascination for the 19th century to create his art works. He illustrated covers of the Time Magazine, the New Your Times, the Wall Street Journal but also works for companies like Burton or Urban Outfitters.
This year’s ECIS theme – Illustration deals with the impact of the creative industries on the economy and society as a whole. We are delighted that Lorenzo’s artwork perfectly expresses the IMPACT of Cross-Industrial Innovations through Creative Industries.
