The meaning of this name -Diramazioni- comes from the following concept: through the possible ideas, stratification of thoughts and branches of colors you can reach a recollection.
We choose this name also because we love trees!
This is why we consider different projects and like to create something which is visually and conceptually coherent with our clients need and our personal quality- philosophy and visual feeling.
Diramazioni is a two creatives team based in Milan. We are partners in work and life and also collaborate on the same illustration combining our vision and skills.
