Marco Giannini

From Italy, a mix of newspaper information design with viral infographics

July 29, 2012

Time for another Portfolio of the Week, this time from Italy, a country with lots of talented information designers that we’ll be featuring here on a regular basis. Today, we’d like to introduce the work of Marco Giannini.

While graduating from Università degli Studi di Roma ‘La Sapienza’, and getting his PhD in Italian Literature and Linguistic, Marco worked for almost 4 years at the popular weekly magazine Avvenimenti  as a graphic and infographic designer. In 2000, he was hired by La Repubblica, one of the top daily Italian newspapers, and has been creating infographics there for the past 12 years. He’s also the owner of Infografica Animata, a creative studio specialized in static, animated and interactive graphics, with several international clients.

Here are a few examples of Marco’s work, both from newspapers and clients worldwide – you’ll probably recognize some of those:
