Advertising on magazines and social media
The following gallery gathers some images I created for advertising on social media and interior design magazines.
The new Modenese Gastone logo
I was asked to redesign the company's logo and, after a study on heraldry and iconography, I hand-drew a new logo. I converted the drawing in a vector-graphic format with Adobe Illustrator and here is the result:
Modenese Gastone is a company located in Casale of Scodosia (Padua, Italy) and the Cornucopia is the symbol of this town.
Artisans' working tools and oak leaves come out from the horn of plenty, while a laurel (symbol of glory) and olive (symbol of internationality) branch crown them.
The two winged lions recall the S. Marco Venetian lion, but unlike it, they are rampant with three paws up.
The escutcheon is supposed to contain the initials of Modenese Gastone. Beneath it, there is another space for the year of Modenese Gastone foundation.
