We are a multidisciplinary creative studio founded by like-minded designers with a shared visual aesthetic and values for a more collaborative and streamlined process. Our work is not defined by medium or clientele, in fact, diversity in approach and projects is something we pride ourselves in. The studio specializes in building brands from the ground up and in leading established brands in new directions.

Our Founding Principles

Good creative erases the distinction between an idea and its execution.

When you come across talented people in life, keep them close.

Approach every opportunity with the curiosity of Jacques Cousteau.

A Brief History

ITALIC was founded in 2012 by designer / creative directors Ron Thompson and Matt Titone. Both moved to LA from New York City in 2006 in search of sunnier skies and a healthier work lifestyle. The studio started as a means to pursue the kind of projects and clients that Ron and Matt wanted to work with and to incorporate their varied backgrounds in graphic design, illustration, branding, advertising, motion, environmental and digital into their own unique style. Since setting up shop in Los Angeles, California, ITAL/C has creatively shaped brands big and small, locally and internationally with an emphasis on smart, considered and strategic design work. Whether it be a global campaign for Reebok, a motion graphics video for Coca Cola, or branding the sandwich shop on our block, each project is treated with the same attention to detail and follows the same process.
