Studio8585 is a design practice of Mario Depicolzuane, an independent designer, art director and consultant.

Background

I'm currently a designer and art director at Ouur & Kinfolk. Also, I continually work as a freelance designer, art director and consultant on selected projects and I'm available for hire. 

Over the years, I’ve worked with clients of all sizes and from various sectors, including Sonos, Bang & Olufsen, Menu, Red Bull Music Academy, LG Electronics, British Pathé, Panasonic, Croatian Society of Artists, Marina Punat, HBO Adria and Erste & Steiermarkische Bank.

Approach

I focus on providing simple, elegant and effective design solutions, mostly in a form of visual identities, art direction, websites and other associated material including stationery, publications, signage and films.

Equal competence across print and screen and a wide collaborative network enables me to handle projects that cover several creative disciplines.

I value close partnership with my clients and collaborators. 

Last but not least, I love what I do.

Press

My work has been published in international design publications and featured on design blogs, in magazines and newspapers.
