The work of Luca Barcellona

Luca Barcellona Drawing calligraphy live in Milan

Luca Barcellona is a 32 year old designer and calligrapher from Milan, where he runs his own studio as a freelancer. Letters are the main ingredient of his creations. Luca teaches calligraphy with the Associazione Calligrafica Italiana and holds workshops in several cities around Europe. The means of his work is to make the manual skill of an ancient art as writing and the languages and instruments of the digital era coexist. In 2003 he founded with Rae Martini and Marco Klefisch the collective Rebel Ink, with which he gives life to a live exhibition of calligraphy, writing and illustration. In 2009 he has worked for the National Museum of Zurich, with calligraphist Klaus Peter Schaffel, to realize the faithful reproduction of a big globe dated back to the 1569, using calligraphy with original materials (quill and natural inks). Among the brands that requested his lettering we can number Carhartt, Nike, Mondadori, Zoo York, Dolce&Gabbana, Sony BMG, Seat, Volvo, Universal, Eni.
