Luigi Brusciano is an Italian graphic designer, creating work under the name of Ignorance. Check out the short interview we did with him below.
Apart from other art and design, what directly inspires your work and your design style?
I’ve been always following with very active interest the graffiti scene and it’s probably what influences me the most. However, in the last few years my inspiration comes from observing the most common and simple actions that people (myself included) do everyday without giving them much thought. I like to focus, rethink and distort those simple elements to transform what before was something trivial, in a bold statement or even a provocation.
What’s the one thing that has helped you get to where you are today?
My passion for art and my curiosity are definitely what helped me to stand out in a this very competitive field. Being a graphic designer for me is not only doing a job that I love, but it’s part of my lifestyle. It’s important to be constantly challenged in order to improve and evolve. Any moment of the day can be source of inspiration and lead to a new challenge to become an better designer.
What inspires you to keep doing what you’re doing?
In many years my style has evolved a lot. I’m a better designer than I was 10 years ago and the idea of getting better and better is what keeps me going. Today we see new beautiful art made by amazingly talented artists that try to make a difference. I want to be part of that scene, to make my contribution and try to inspire other artists.
If you weren’t doing what you’re doing now – what else would you like to be doing?
I would probably trying to be a good dj. I’ve been doing it for many years and it’s still one of my greatest passions. I keep listening to electronic music searching for interesting tunes.
No matter how small or insignificant, what is one thing you’ve done this week that has made you happy?
I think it has been just going out with my vespa px, having a break from work with a coffee and enjoying sun after some days of terrible weather. It has just lasted 20 minutes, and it's apparently insignificant, but it broke the daily routine that kills everybody.
What are your plans for the next few years?
First of all I want to continue doing graphic artworks as much as I can; in May I will be featured in a great brazilian fanzine and I'd like to do collaborations like this in the coming years as well. Then I’d like to start again doing graffiti art or street art as I used to do, and of course I'll travel– visiting new places where I can explore interesting street art scenes and be inspired and influenced by landscapes, people, different cultures and costumes.
