The Label:

Nicolas Colaneri loves to create images and drawings and see them come to fruition.
He has been perceived as contemplating over the drawings he has before him with the model in his hand.
There is a great sense of accomplishment that comes from envisioning a project and building it with your own
hands. There is a wine glass in the background filled with Merlot for inspiration. He has an admiration for the
“Wolverine” character so our designer gave him a “wolverine” beard. The trademark claw marks on the wall
behind him show how he lets out his frustrations.
