AssembraMenti (Assemblies), fostering the ecological transition
15 April 2021
Last weekend we joined Rinascimento Green, a collective of associations, to take care of the direction of “AssembraMenti”, the two-day event dedicated to the Emilia-Romagna Region (Italy). The initiative was born to identify ideas and proposals to promote the ecological transition, implementing the French model of citizens’ assemblies.
More than 300 participants gave shape to 15 ideas presented yesterday to the Region.

Explaining a humanitarian platform through images
6 April 2021
RedSafe is a free digital humanitarian platform that provides safe information and services to those in need (migrants, people in war zones or afflicted by other humanitarian crises). We have joined ICRC and created this video to explain in a simple and clear way how it works.
Putting together all the pieces
29 March 2021
Now more than ever days look like a very long session to solve a jigsaw puzzle: scattering all the pieces, grouping them, figuring out how to frame them, realizing what doesn’t work and starting again.
Practice makes perfect and this is why we decided to transform four illustrations we made into 1000 pieces puzzles!
They can be purchased on our online shop.
A brand new Estravagario
22 March 2021
Today we started the final phase of work to rebuild the organic and veggie restaurant Estravagario, together with redesigning their brand and their visual language, in line with their values (very much ours!) and their story.
It’s all about style
10 March 2021
Each project has its own path and often times the final result is very different from the first drafts.
The definition of the illustrative style is an important step and we dedicate our full attention to it, presenting different proposals: a consistent system of illustrations makes the project recognizable and enriches its contents, conveying in a simple and immediate way what might be left out by words and numbers.
What’s the purpose of a storyboard
7 March 2021
We’re working with ActionAid on a new video project and, as always, we’ve started from the storyboard. The storyboard is a document that matches voiceover and illustrations, in a draft form, to define what’s going to happen in the video. It’s a crucial step for us and for our clients: it allows us to clearly state our ideas, receive and implement feedback until we everyone agrees we can start the actual realization.
The production process of a video is time-consuming, and starting from a consolidated storyboard allow us to save time: it’s a perfect example of go slow to go fast.

“Words at work”, new IMA Diversity project
25 February 2021
A few days ago we took part in the first appointment of “Parole al Lavoro” (EN, “Words at work”), the new choral project of IMA Diversity: through games and reflections, we help to create a glossary by focusing on words and their possible meanings. We had already got to know IMA in action, in a short training with them on the subject of inclusion, and once again interacting together was useful, very interesting and definitely fun!
The life of videos and animations
23 February 2021
How do our videos get used once released?
We are supporting a collaborative session for IDH and besides scribing and facilitating parts of the workshop, a speaker used a video we recently produced to introduce the context for the main topic.
Videos and animations are a great way to share content in a quick, compelling and creative way.
