Design Principal

Founder of MunariDesign, Nicola-Matteo Munari is a designer specialised in the fields of visual identity coordination and editorial design, enjoying an international reputation thanks to his dedication to quality and his commitment to the cultural promotion of design.
  Once graduated in Graphic Design from the Art Lyceum, he was apprenticed in wood sculpture and exhibited as an artist, experimenting with painting and photography.
  He studied Architecture of Buildings at the Milan Politecnico University for one year and then enrolled in the Scuola Politecnica di Design (SPD), where he graduated with a Master in Visual Design.
  Since 2010 he has worked as an independent designer and consultant producing an extended body of work across all scales and disciplines of communication design, including corporate identity, brand architecture, editorial design, packaging, art direction, photography, type design, signage, environmental graphics, digital design, web development, naming, and copywriting.
  From 2012 to 2015 he collaborated with Italian graphic design master Italo Lupi, coordinating the exhibition graphics of Milan’s Cathedral Museum and the identity of the Triennale Design Museum’s 7th edition, whose catalogue received the Honorable Mention from the Compasso d’Oro award.
  In 2015 he established MunariDesign in Piacenza—right in the middle of Northern Italy—developing projects for important companies such as Moto Guzzi, Pirelli, Auditel, the Zurich Center of Finance and Insurance, Ferrari, Madonna di Campiglio, Molteni Group, Naturgy, Edison, Flash Art, Moleskine and others.
  Since 2020 he acts as design director in charge of the corporate identity of UniFor—an international leader in the field of office furniture and workspace environment—designing and coordinating all the company’s visual communication. In 2022 he was appointed the same role also by Citterio, another company belonging to Molteni Group, one of the most respected international furniture groups.
  In addition to the professional practice, he constantly dedicates himself to the cultural promotion of design. In 2013 he founded Designculture—a website where he publishes essays and interviews with leading designers from around the world—while in 2015 he founded Archivio Grafica Italiana—the first online archive dedicated to the entire Italian graphic design heritage.
  Member of the Italian Association of Design Historians (AIS/Design). He is contributor to Pretext—a magazine published by the Lombardy Institute of Contemporary History (ILSC)—and was advisor to Gute Process magazine.
  In 2022 he has been selected as a “case of excellence” by the curatorial committee of the Atlas of Creative and Cultural Enterprises issued by the Treccani Institute of the Italian Encyclopedia.
  Internationally appreciated also as a design scholar, since 2012 he has been giving lectures and workshops to art schools, universities, and design institutes including the Milan Politecnico University, SCAD of Hong Kong, LABA of Brescia, Art Lyceum of Piacenza, University of New Haven, and the School of Visual Arts (SVA) of New York.
