I’m a Brooklyn-based graphic designer specializing in:   

TYPOGRAPHYLETTERING, & BOOK DESIGN


R_GERONI_Portrait

I attended Tyler School of Art’s Graphic and Interactive Design BFA program and worked as the Heads of State’s first intern during my final semester. After winning top portfolio and graduating from Tyler in 2010, I worked as half of the award-winning design and illustration studio Headcase Design for five years.

Having a desire to focus more on typography and lettering, I moved to NYC to work for the elegant studio, Louise Fili Ltd, and after being surrounded by everything Italian, hand-lettered, and food-related for one incredible year, I am now working independently.

In 2016, I was honored to be nominated and featured as one of Print Magazine’s 15 Under 30: New Visual Artists.
