Creative Art Director
Drawing on his twenty-plus years of experience as an artist, photographer, concept developer, and graphic designer, Salvatore founded The Point in 2009. From Italy by way of France and now Finland, Salvatore is a yoga practitioner and goes for a daily jog. His enthusiasm for exercise provides a degree of balance to his uncompromising passion for work. Salvatore is generally a calm spirit, but when inspiration strikes or when he is collaborating with a client, or his colleagues, or both, he is often heard exclaiming “fantastic!” or “fantastico!” depending on the day.
