Well, since you asked…..

Artigiana is the Italian word for artisan and this word embodies our philosophical approach. An artisan creates functional art. We strive for our projects to be that.

You have a functional chair. It works. You can sit in it.

But if it is something more, if it is aesthetically pleasing and comfortable AND you can sit in it……. Nice!

That’s the Artigiana approach.

That’s what we create for our clients. Graphic design, photography and word crafting that is functional art.

Founder & Creative director

“I started out as a fine artist and then fell in love as well with graphic design and content and technical writing.  I’m also a history buff and a word nerd. Making connections with art history, design theory and the passage of time is part of my creative process.”


Writer, Editor and Photographer

“Writing has always been a natural form of expression for me.  For years, I indulged my love for words by working in libraries and scribbling endlessly in journals.  Receiving an education in business writing has provided an edge to my creative writing background.  Capturing experience through photography and intent through the written word is my approach to an engaging connection.”


web developper

“I am Artigiana’s resident computer geek.  My software development degree has opened doors to various technology fields, from web development to technical programming and technical engineering.  When I’m not working with 1s and 0s, I enjoy trying my hand at the culinary arts or relaxing with a good book.”


Illustrator and Graphic Designer

“I started out as an illustrator and painter. Then I was able to work with graphics and web animations and fell in love. As a science and art enthusiast, I am fascinated with understanding the possibilities of design software and the mechanics of computers. Figuring out how to use them create products that are aesthetically gorgeous is so fun!” 

Company Policy Statement

Artigiana Communication Design expects compliance with strict dress codes. All team members are required to wear fuzzy slippers while at work.

Resistance is futile.
