In 2012, all the expertise and experience accumulated in the UAU office, which opened in 2001, was brought together and placed in a new context; the POINT studio. Our office is an authentic melting pot in which personnel of varied skills and outlook come together to prove that heterogeneity can be a true strength. Although based in Turin (Italy), we cannot deny a certain affinity for the international stage. In the office, architects, visualizers and graphic designers work together to provide the client with a quality project and tailor made design. Every single client, from the smallest to the largest company, is considered a great challenge and receives the utmost attention from all the staff. Our work is now well known in Italy and is gaining notoriety in the Far East, Europe and United States, with various publications and awards won worldwide.

Born in 1985, Marco started out from his scientific background to take a degree in Industrial Design at the Polytechnic School of Turin. Curiosity and the desire for a challenge brought him into contact with the world of Graphic Design. He has honed his skills since he started working for some of the most bustling small firms in Turin in 2005.

In his work he aims to achieve functionality and clarity of form as he favours meaning over line.
