Emiliano Ponzi is based in Milan, Italy. His bold textured illustrations use repetition, a judicious use of line and strong graphic compositions to define and communicate the concept at hand. The play of visual metaphor and symbolism are continuous themes throughout his work. Emiliano has received numerous honours including the Young Guns Award from New York’s Art Directors Club, medals of honour from the Society of Illustrators New York, Los Angeles and 3×3 Magazine Pro show. 

He has also won the How International Design Award, Communication Arts Illustration Annuals and American Illustration Annuals. The last award was the coveted Gold Cube from The Art Directors Club of New York, received in 2013.
