About

 

Pete Rossi was born just outside Glasgow, Scotland in 1981 to an Italian father and Scottish mother. He went on to graduate with a 1st from the Glasgow School of Art in 2006 and has since worked in freelance and full-time capacities for several renowned studios in the UK and Europe.

In 2011 he was one of the 50 winners to receive the prestigious Art Directors Club of New York Young Gun award. His work has also been awarded by ADC, D&AD, Graphis and Red Dot.

He also holds an awarded membership with D&AD, Graphis and ADC, where he formed part of the jury for Young Guns 11.

He believes in ideas and socially engaging work coupled with a simple philosophy based on intelligent, crafted and original design that makes a difference and solves problems effectively.

His work is informed by the process and development inherent within any one given project — working in fields from Art direction, Book design, Digital media, Typography, Identity, Print and ‘social’ self initiated projects.

In 2013, he co-founded design studio RM&CO with Swiss partner Alfio Mazzei.
