Roberto Da Pozzo Creative Director
Having studied at the Art School in Monza, Roberto’s career began in earnest in 1980 working as a comic artist for Linus and Alter Alter, and producing cartoons for TV, as well as illustrations for the Vogue Group.
By 1980, he was Art Director for Vogue Pelle overseeing magazine layout, photography, photoshoots and art direction. In 1993 he moved to the Trussardi Group where he was Image Consultant. Here he developed a new logo and range of colours for the brand, while also developing new packaging, catalogues and a website. He collaborated with Roberto Benigni over the graphics for the film Il Mostro, and Robert Altman on the film Prêt-à-Porter, which he art directed.
In 1993 he opened his own studio. The rest, as they say, is history. As an image consultant, Roberto has worked for and with some of the world’s most iconic brands in the fashion and luxury goods sectors. He has also commissioned and worked with the world’s very best photographers, including the likes of Helmut Newton.
