We have already illustrated how to recreate the Woolmark logo with Abobe Illustrator®; in this video tutorial by Caio Pires, we learn how to reproduce the logo that Franco Grignani created for the Peccolo Gallery in 1971, where in the same year he was hosted for a personal exhibition (Franco Grignani, 20 opere: tempere, acrilici 1965-1970).

But let’s remember Grignani worked during a time when physical craftsmanship and creativity still predominated. “A good drawing starts with a well-sharpened pencil”, as he was used to saying, perfectly encapsulating his imaginative, yet disciplined work. No computers, just your hands!

For 50 years, from 1969 up to 2019, when it closed definitely, Galleria Peccolo had been a cultural reference point for the city of Livorno, having hosted great masters from all over the world.

The symbol stylizes a G and a P, as for Galleria Peccolo.
