Francesco Franchi lives and works in Milan, Italy, where I also happen to live and work. I’ve followed his work for a while and would argue he’s an individual/designer with a truly original and significant voice in the world of editorial graphic design. 


Bridging different traditional styles and genres of graphic design with highly intimate and personal illustration and data visualization, he’s made IL magazine a constant source of inspiration and a point of reference for the rest of us, within and outside of Italy.

His works is based around a true understanding of visual storytelling and soulful craftsmanship. I envy his ability to tell stories through what is essentially a very personal style of design and illustration.
