those city lights...

Hello, my name is Mario Di Sandro.

Over 12 years of experience. A detail-driven, pixel-perfect purist, steadfast graphic designer, web designer, production designer, front-end web developer, graphic production artist, all around artist. I love creating print work such as poster art, layout design and branding. I can also design and build a website from scratch, while also having a keen photographic eye, as well as lending an illustrative hand when needed. I have a very healthy obsession with typography. Born in Chicago, IL. Based in Los Angeles, CA.

In 2011, I packed my car and left my hometown of Chicago for San Francisco. Fast-forward 8 years and I am still excited about design and what the future holds, but now in another new city. Hoping to land my next job in Los Angeles so that it will move me forward in the direction I am looking to grow in.

I started drawing at an early age and never stopped. At 5, the pencil was my best friend. I used to make my own cassette tape inserts and redesign them using the original packaging. I rarely use the eraser. I don't believe in editing your feelings. I've been jokingly quoted as saying, "the best ideas are always written on napkins"...
