Mario is a great designer with a creative soul and great skill in sketching and creating logo. He uses photoshop like a Pro in photo retouching and image creation. He’s a little bit too “funny”, but never gives you the work incomplete and never delays your plan! Simply… a good leader with some mesmerising minutes!

Mario’s works are overwhelming: his great strength is to see a picture before to draw it.

We hired Mario to create the graphics for our latest Social Game. We were very impressed that not only did he relocate to work on the project but he consistently produced great work to a high standard. He brought a wide range of skills to bear; from 3D modelling in Maya to Digital Painting in Photoshop. He was also able to grasp the technical requirements for the game and came up with great ideas for further development. I am looking forward to working with him in the future.

Mario is a creative designer, who can produce top level results on time and on budget. He is able to understand your needs without loosing time in the details, often giving you new perspectives that enhance the perception of your company and products. He is not afraid to tell you’re wrong, even if you’re a paying customer, that’s why I can always count on his advice.

To whom it may concern,

It was my pleasure to work with Mr Veltri on a couple of occasions, and I was surprised to see how skilled and creative he is.

At the time my company needed a new perspective and a new approach to our graphic marketing materials, and Mr Veltri was able to show us several different perspectives, and gave our company logos and pamphlets a brand new design.

I have no hesitations in recommending Mr Veltri for any projects he wishes to pursue.

Mario è una persona “stravagante” (leggi estroso e con molto talento), come solo i migliori grafici possono essere. È un tutt’uno con la sua tavoletta grafica! Vederlo lavorare è un piacere. Avere a che fare con lui professionalmente è un onore. Conoscerlo come amico è una gratificazione. Sentirgli strimpellare la chitarra… beh! Qui è meglio lasciar perdere ;P
Grande Mario

Mario è un grafico dalle grandi capacità espressive. Ha un’innata dote che lo portano a realizzare opere grafiche che prendono vita, espressioni di un flusso di emozioni trasposte sui media.

Mario is a great graphic designer with unlimited fantasy. He know more or less all the graphics software of the world. I seen him draw with maya, photoshop, illustrator and a bunch of others tools.
He is the best creative designer i know and moreover he is a nice guy with good aptitude to work in team.
