Daniele Simonelli is a full-time freelance Illustrator with 8-year experience creating work for editorial, advertising and design industries. Currently working remotely from Rome (Italy), he graduated from the European Institute of Design in 2011 and, after spending the first years of his career in different design studios in Rome, he moved to London in 2015, when he officially started his career as a full-time freelance Illustrator. His style has been defined as "both warm and endearing. Through his calculated use of texture and color, he creates vivid imagery that tempt and captivate your attention." (grainedit.com).
