Laura Faraci

Raised among pencils and Photoshop, I took interest in drawing with both traditional and digital tools since I was I child. After high school, I decided to follow my passion, and took up the study of visual arts by attending the Communication Design course at Politecnico di Milano. My studies focused on animation and editorial design, but they also gave me the chance to explore the themes of gender and communication, which became the topic of my master’s thesis.

After graduation, I worked for three years in the field of exhibition design in Milan, dealing with the creation of animated contents for immersive environments.

In 2021 I wrote and published Apologie della violenza, a book exploring the paradox of how social campaigns against gender-based violence often spread ideas and stereotypes that are harmful to the victims of violence themselves.

Currently, I freelance as an illustrator and 2D motion designer, working in Stuttgart both on-site and remotely.
