Filippo Digregorio (Greg)
Hi, I’m Filippo and I’m a graphic designer with a passion for illustration and layout design.
I am interested in the world of 2D animation and interface design which I would like to explore further.
I am passionate about music, pop culture and comics which I consider as an inspirational source in my projects.
Selling Out! is a series of fictitious products that refer to the world of hip hop in its golden age and that satirically denote the sad phenomenon that hip hop today is a product exploited by the market, stripping it of its original value, which is to tell the truth and reducing it to a mere sales product; due the previous experiments, I have gradually come to create a unique visual identity in which I have focused on the use of typography as a plastic material adaptable to all circumstances, taking care to maintain a certain readability.
Nowdays we are used to using technology to create interations with the others even over long distance and this can only be good in terms of practicality. On the other hand, this has created a huge gap in interpersonal interactions creating an aseptic human to machine relationship. People are distracted by their devices which atrophy the social skills essential to having an interpersonal conversation and this leads to a kind of social isolation where we worry more about the amount of virtual friendships than real ones.
Keep It Real
“Keep It Real” it’s a project made using Pixel Art style.
In the begin it would be an experiment where I involved comics rules learned during a year of comics school but it ended up being a distinguished piece of work.
The most interesting part was to imagine the shots based on sound using my sensitivity to rhythm.
It is a project created by decontextualising the purpose of each element in a meal and reversing their roles, so the uneatable object becomes edible and vice versa.
