Simon Griffee

Columbia University
Graphic Designer

A multicultural background and life experience growing up in Brazil and Tunisia, going to university in the U.K. and living in Italy for many years heightened Simon’s sensitivity to life’s contrasts and made him a life-long student of the visual arts. He has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Creative Advertising from Bournemouth University and a City and Guilds Diploma with Distinction in Photography from Arts University Bournemouth, but far more than any letters preceding his name, his most effective education has been from individual people who have inspired him, including those who have spoken across time through the magic of books, films, music, sculpture, websites, computer games and nature. Simon is a freelance photographer and image editor, and works part of his time as a graphic designer at Columbia University’s Italian Academy.
