Designer Ito Morabito speaks to Design Boom
why this interest in brands?
when I was young I was fascinated by brands,
about their history …
at the beginning a brand is a person who has a dream

the most iconic ones.
I proclaimed myself their artistic director.
I used their logos in my designs without asking for permission.

my dream came true.
