My name is Massimo Künstler, I’m an independent graphic designer and documentary photographer based in Rome. I’ve been working in the field of visual communication since the last millennium. I can provide quality solutions for brands and individuals, to support their business and boost social media content.
I started off my free-lance career as graphic designer while still student at my Design University. Then I moved to the States, in LA, for one year of real world experience. Back in Rome, I launched my "Kunstler Studio”, pioneering the switch from analogue to digital. A few years later I needed to grow bigger and I started “The Looking Glass Factory”. But as my new company grew, I realised I was missing my independence. Eventually I took the big decision and quit my 15 people company. To celebrate my new found freedom I launched my first personal website: MKsite.com, that immediately stood out of the crowd. Now, with many years of both designing and teaching experience, and about 1.500 projects done, I’m carrying on my free-lance designer career, offering one more service that I truly love. That is photography.
A fusion of seasoned professional knowledge and experience, stemming from many intense years in design and in teaching visual communication. Over 1.500 projects developed. An operating dimension of exploratory creativity. A wide range of clients. These are my most valuable professional credentials. Here's what I can do.
Photography for me is a new love.
Sinthetizing, I could say: I do graphic design with love, yet I love to do photography.
As a photographer I have two personalities. Me, I do street and documentary photography, because I like to catch candid, unposed, unexpected moments, as well as investigating human nature and behaviour. My alter ego does food + lifestyle shooting, for brands that need to improve their social media content quality, because he likes to get paid. In both cases, we snap our photos with natural light and the least of tech gears.
Try us out.
Künstler in German means "artist". Being born with such a name is already a big responsibility. But that's nothing, really, if compared to how little did I know about the meaning of my nickname, which is Kü. Until I found out...
Kū, the fifth element in Japanese philosophy, represents those things beyond our everyday experience, particularly those things composed of pure energy. Bodily, kū represents spirit, thought, and creative energy. It represents our ability to think and to communicate, as well as our creativity. It can also be associated with power, creativity, spontaneity, and inventiveness.
