Matteo Bologna

Founder/President
Mucca Design

Matteo Bologna is the founder and president of New York-based Mucca Design Corporation, where he also serves as creative director. Born and raised in Milan, Italy, Bologna's grounding in architecture, graphic design, illustration and typography facilitated his early business successes and inspired his decision to create a New York agency. Under Bologna's direction the Mucca Design team has solved numerous design challenges and created uniquely successful identities for widely varied brands. Bologna frequently accepts invitations to participate in judging panels for industry competitions and as a speaker to audiences of design professionals. When he isn't obsessing over typeface and design details, he can be found obsessing over his lovely wife and their adorable young daughters Olivia and Sofia.
