Rocco Malatesta's Summary


Exclusively represented worldwide by:

Shannon Associates
333 West 57th Street, Suite 809
New York, NY 10019

I’m a Designer originally from Milan, Italy currently living in Berlin.

 I have over 13 years experience working as Senior Designer and Art Director in some of the busiest office in the world. In 2011 I decided to move to Berlin to find some inspiration and improving my professional skills and actually I'm working in MetaDesign AG Berlin as Designer. I'm self-motivated, initiative and willing to relocate for work.

I believe I have very good interpersonal relations skills, I'm open minded and able to work and live in international/multicultural environments, in groups but also with good autonomy. Over the years I have developed skills for group coordination and individual projects.

The key strengths that I possess include:
Professional knowledge of graphics software. In particular: InDesign, X-Press, Photoshop, Illustrator, Acrobat, and Mac OS X.

Great knowledge of the printing processes and their technical requirements.

Excellent ability in developing graphic design research.

Great ability to work in a multinational team environment.

Proficient at communicating efficiently, both orally and in writing with all levels of management employees and service providers.

Ability to establish and maintain effective working relationships with all levels of staff, team leaders, clients and colleagues
