sometimes a cowboy hat is just a cowboy hat
My name is Carlo Grosoli and I am a graphic designer.

I taught Art Direction, Design Processes and Layout Techniques at the Bologna office of IAAD - Institute of Applied Art and Design.

On this website I upload some explorations of visual language and design.



On Instagram every now and then I carry out a series of uploads that I call Fun Before Dinner with which I visualize concepts with quick graphic solutions.


Workshops I took part to

TYPE - LETTERING – LAYOUT about typography and lettering, with Massimo Pitis (Signs & Lines, MiCamera, Milano 2012).
