Isabella Conticello (b. 1988) is an Italian graphic designer and illustrator. She is recognized by her unique way of translating colours and shapes into a very accurate style. On completion, she supports her layouts with a likewise meticulous manner of combining lines and forms with an impeccable sense of density and volume.
She is indeed a colour person, one of those chicks that are used to describe every memory with a colour-related emotion. For instance, as she originally is from Sicily, the blue of the sea and the yellow of the sun are recurring elements in her artwork.
Her passion for graphic design has grown while studying fine arts at the Accademia di Belle Arti di Palermo, core moment in which she started realizing her innovative, yet simple and clean, graphic layouts. Her inspiration especially comes from Yves Klein, Irma Boom and Franco Fontana’s work: “..to me, blue, red and yellow are the perfect triad. I always search for new ways of using a chosen component or to interpret an element, to then find out that final core element that will pool all the other ones together, as in a big family.”
She currently works mainly with vector digital media, as she still defines herself quite tied to this technique, as it was her first approach to her initial artworks.
Despite her young age, she has already collected various important collaborations, but she hasn’t got a preferred one to mention. She says: “Every project is unique and I have always gained something important from each one”.
Although she works mainly with digital, she still hasn’t a personal website, and probably this is something we like about her. She defines Behance a shelter for those artists, like her, that still does not set the idea of having a website. So to know more about her work, visit her Behance page.
