So you want some news about me…ehm..ok. I am an italian creative director who focuses on crafting unique, innovative and AWESOME brands..If you want to know more keep scrolling.
Born in Parma, Italy to a family long established in the fashion industry as collaborators to world renowned designers such as Christian Dior, Gianfranco Ferrè, Mauro Grifoni, DKNY & Calvin Klein, Emanuele Nicolella was submerged in an environment where creativity, design and innovation were reined supreme. It was only natural that he would cultivate a strong creative flair and have the doors of the design world beckoning him.
At the tender age of seven. Emanuele began to draw and compete in art exhibitions. By 12, it was clear that he indeed was destined for a promising and exciting future in design,
In 2007, Emanuele completed a design course to put his handmade works into digital form. It was during this period that his work began to flourish; spawning a loyal clientele base.
Whilst continuing his studies at the prestigious University of Parma, a chief Italian political party ‘Casapound Italia’ sought Emanuele’s talents for its national campaign.
His contribution to the campaign was highly received by members of Italy’s political community and it wasn’t long before he was snapped up by a major marketing office ‘Studio Ghiretti’ where his impressive string of clientele included ‘Coca Cola Zero’, ‘Gazzetta dello Sport’ (a prominent Italian newspaper), ‘Yakult’ and other highly established brands.
In 2010, in a bid to broaden his market and expand his knowledge and international relations, Emanuele moved to Sydney, Australia. It was there that his thriving studio ‘Black Sugar Designs’ was born.
Under ‘Black Sugar Designs and Mageeco’, his works amongst many, have included building websites for agents of ‘FIFA’, launching an advertising campaign and logo design for an impending energy drink, designing CD jackets and promotional content for ‘Record Companies’ and working with the “Academy of Information” and Technology and the “Institute of Colour + Design”
In addition to being Creative Director of ‘Mageeco’, Emanuele worked as Associate Senior Multimedia Designer for ‘Bit Special’ Digital Media and Strategy Agency and as Web Specialist at ‘Belgrin’ Creative Communication.
