Just a great designer and always a pleasure to work with. Supportive and patient.
Working with Venanzio has been a great experience. He is solid and competent in his delivery and quick to respond to questions and requests. His design stood out from all the others in how different it was from the majority. He was the only one that took the back cover design one step further and integrated our personal symbol into it as well as the front.
Our topic is hope and I believe the use of graphics and light truly inspires hope in people who look at the cover.
