When I'm not sneaking around the internet, you can find me in bookstores, poking around in parks and petting dogs all around Toronto.

Ricca Designs is the personal brand of the Graphic Designer Riccardo Medugno. From an early age Riccardo has showed skills and tendencies towards art. All of his school notebooks were a mix of academic content with his inbuilt graphic art. Even at notes-to-self, if they don't display a touch of art, a special circle, a flashy and appealing outline, or any other visual effect, was certainly done by someone else. When he started using Graphic Design software and learning website coding in mid-2010, his possibilities expanded even further. Riccardo delivered works for some clients, published his own website, among others. Afterwards, he worked with IT-support, having attended 2 college programs in the field, one being pc networking in Canada. In these experiences, more programming languages were learned, web related included. Now, in 2021, by completing his most relevant and refined study program ever, the 1-yr “Graphic Design for Print and Web” at Humber College, Riccardo's skills have entered a whole new level. From his journey at Humber Faculty of Media & Creative Arts he has reformulated his own brand, and is now ready to do the same to whoever may need it, offering the state of the art in Graphic Design.¬
