designer loves art...Laura and Luisa Lodetti ...159

working alone sometimes is good but some other times working with family is even better

this is  Laura and Luisa Lodetti

sisters from Italy, both illustrators who studied in Milan. their style is very colorful, simple and whimsical. though my own love of Jane Austen is how i found them, they have created a little interactive map of 2 of Austen's work (Pride and Prejudice & Sense and Sensibility) and now even a game you can download though itunes. now with their own studio they are focusing on illustration, publicity and some merchandise.
