My method of teaching is very practical, I like to directly apply concepts and techniques to a project and explain while doing. It makes every lesson fun and entertaining, and allows the students to create something from the very first hour. For more advanced students I've also designed a specific masterclass to bring their skills to the next level.
I'm a Senior Art Director from Italy, I've been working in advertising for over 8 years, currently working at Saatchi&Saatchi Melbourne. During my career I've worked for international brands such as Heineken, Renault and McDonald's. In 2019 I've been a tutor for AWARD School, teaching advertising and creativity to a class of 10 students.

Better that a year at RMIT, I've learnt more with his lessons than with an actual course diploma in graphic design. Santi explains everything with clarity, and he is also extremely skilled and talented.
Thanks for sharing all your knowledge, I'm finally able to make some amazing creations!!!
What a great teacher, he is the sensei of digital art!
Thanks for all your lessons.
I thought I knew enough about Photoshop, but Santi completely changed my mind, he's a wizard!
I learned a lot thanks to his classes, but I still have a long way to be before I can become as good as him.
You do a great job man!
Santi is great! I had a very very basic knowledge of photoshop, and with just 4 lessons I was able to easily navigate the interface and do some very nice artworks. His method is really creative, fun and productive. I definitely recommend him.
