Stefano Giustiniani is the co-founder (with Maria Giustiniani) of Los Hopper, a creative studio based in San José, Costa Rica that specializes in a trans-disciplinary approach for wild ideas and experimental visual output. Los Hopper works collectively and strategically to generate ideas that incorporate humor, objects, environments, and situations. The results span visual work in graphic design, art direction, motion and animation, illustration, typography, packaging, web, and so much more. The studio was founded as a flexible practice with a core team that often expands to include a bigger network of specialists, depending on the project.

In 2013, Los Hopper founded the news truck El Gato; a mobile, sporadic publishing practice. Each edition of El Gato resulted in the start-to-finish production (investigate, write, design, print, and distribute) of a newspaper in 24 hours, under different geographical contexts and executed through a van, classroom, workshop, and festival settings. El Gato could be seen as a rolling conversation, an exchange of information between causally connected communities.
Since 2015, the studio has worked closely with the Design Department of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), designing a range of static and animated materials for the museum. Los Hopper’s far-reaching client collaborators are based across the US, Latin America, and Europe.
Stefano has been a regular visitor to PNCA Design classes, and is always inspiring!
Hosted by the BFA Graphic Design program at Pacific Northwest college of Art since 2016, the Design Lecture Series welcomes designers from all over the world to share their work and what moves them.
The 2020-2021 evolution of our series will take advantage of the potential for more interaction across our distances by hosting panel discussions in place of traditional lectures. As a way to open our “doors” and minds to the broad and vibrant possibilities in design, panels are driven by current students and faculty in conversation with a diverse set of creative folks who break expectations of what design can be and do in the world today.
