Alberto Casagrande

Illustration, Mixed-Media, Mural

Casagrande’s artistic journey is a vibrant tale of artistic exploration across design, illustration and typography.

Starting his career in Milan as a graphic designer, he delved into the world of communication where his love for typography blossomed. His debut font, Mazius Display, quickly gained global recognition, becoming a default font on Squarespace.

As he further honed his illustrative skills, he seamlessly blended influences from graphic design, typography, futurism, and constructivism. Often incorporating archive images into his artworks, he developed a style that exudes energy, playfulness, and surrealism. His natural inclination toward merging illustration and design led to an organic expansion of his artistic collaborations, which now encompasses a diverse range of projects including packaging, branding, publishing, advertising, and murals.

In 2024, the Society of Illustrators of New York further recognised his work by awarding him a gold and a silver medal in the “Institutional” and “Design” categories, confirming his status as one of the most talented and promising illustrators of the moment.
