1 July 2020





We will certainly remember 2020 maybe as the year of COVID-19 or the rise of the economic crisis. We decided to think about work only after we got close to our loved ones, after taking the necessary precautions, after dealing with health emergencies. We thought about how to react, how to use time well, so a program was made, ideas were put down and we decided that the best thing to do for the job was to redo the site, from scratch. We needed a different place where we could meet customers and give a more precise image of what we do. Donato (webdesignaddicted.eu) has allowed me to work together with him, at this new dress. Working from home in smart-working mode (as we have always done), we decided to give shape to change.


In 2013 we released the previous version, and our goal has not changed: to give the feeling of an art gallery. A neat and clean place without too many "distractions".
The passing of time creates new needs, brings to light new styles and trends. We have taken all this into consideration and
designed the web-site: You start with a nice note pad and jot down a lot of ideas, you look for references to understand what to approach, what "taste" to go looking for, looking for the right tools and starting to establish all the necessary changes, the introduction of new features and a thousand other things.
We have kept the same guidelines that we had previously but have made countless changes:

from scratch.

As for the site, a rework was recently done, of the Spiderman presented at Lucca Comics 2018 using the beautiful PS4 suit for the first time.
The image is over New York, among its buildings and to give it a dynamic look, there is the spider web practically launched towards the observer. 
It was decided to change the position of the head and to "warm" the coloring to appear as if it was sunset.
This re-work represents well the work done on this site: same spirit, ideals and intentions. 

"Wind of change"

Home Page
In the last version we used a mosaic of regular and geometric bricks directly in the home, with all the posts. We, therefore, published content regularly and created a colorful pattern of various images. We have synthesized, by choosing a static main page, which would give all the information you need and then move inside the various sections of the site (which have decreased a lot). Once again we understand how much the synthesis, the cleaning towards the essential, and therefore the art of "removing", remains the best choice.

We are Italians but we want to reach customers anywhere in the world. Trying to be as international as possible and make ourselves known abroad we adopted a multilingual translation system. However, we found it more effective to use only Italian and English to simplify the entire translation process and to avoid the risk that automatic translation would not correctly translate some terms and thoughts, it is mostly handwritten.

Communication and Identity
These two things have had a radical change, before the concept of an "Artist" who makes "Art" was a rather generic and disordered concept. This is why the identity of "Creative Studio" better reflects the wide range of work that can be requested.
Over time due to necessity and passion, skills and tools have been added that are now specifically indicated:
section "Need pictures" you can find a list of things that Marco does.

Until now everything was communicated through posts like in a blog. We decided to eliminate this feature. From now on, any announcement will be placed directly in "home" and will be explained in detail, in the "News" section.

How can I be sure that I will be satisfied with the drawing? What are the rights when using images? How to use rights protected characters? How can I be sure that a painting will arrive intact to the other side of the world? How can you pay from abroad?
We have thought of everything and in the various sections of the site (such as those under the "Shop" section), we give you all the necessary information!

This site is easy to visit and share. In the lower part you will always find a contact form, where you can make enquiries and requests.

We started from scratch. We have thought carefully about how to divide the images and it is now definitely our definitive catalog, and simple to use!

Another drastic change has been the cancellation of serial products.
You will not find them in the e-commerce, and we do not plan to add others.
We really want to express that everything will be a unique piece, for this reason in the "Special Products" category of the "Shop" you will find some single copies and with each image, we will also provide a certificate of authenticity that attests to its uniqueness.

In summary :
The home page shows who we are and what we do. The section "Need pictures?" shows how we do it. The galleries show all the work and there is also a beautiful shop where to buy something and all this, both in Italian and in English .

We hope you like the site and that it will show you something beautiful and interesting or that it will help you to create the image you need.

Version 6.0

The web-site has always been very important! And it was the reflection of ideas over the years.
In 2005 the first version clearly represented a teenager's vision but in 2010 the vision started to become precise: the web-site had to be minimal, a showcase, there had to be sections with inside the galleries, without too many things that distracted. Here you can see screens of the various versions. We went from an infinitely meager total black version to the "dirty" version of 2013.
We then felt the need for a "clean" that would clean everything up, so everything became white, minimal and orderly. A villain: Doctor Doom takes the place of the heroes, a dark image in contrast with the white, the font was replaced and everything seemed more high-tech. It was one of the most beautiful versions! But shortly thereafter the end will come.
Due to a problem caused by that theme, the site was blocked, there was no way to access it to do anything. The site was unreachable and without being able to update and work on it the obvious consequence was losing all the follow-up.
The two years of absence of the site were the mirror of two years of absence from work, however with perseverance, everything was repaired and returned functional. The work and the site were slowly distributed and the "geometric bricks" visualization we talked about earlier was adopted.
This is the sixth version in 15 years. We went from colors to neutral, from "dirty" to minimal, from galleries to e-commerce, from the "blog" to opening a company.
Definitely the best version we’ve done!
