NARI is a creative consultancy and branding studio, founded by the award winning Caterina Bianchini, established to bridge the gap between design and art. Our practice focuses on giving brands life, character and spirit, through artistic technique, conceptual thought and brand literature. Our anagrammatised mantra, ‘Not Always Right Ideas’ is at the core of everything we do; drawing the focus away from the “do’s & dont’s” of textbook graphic design, practicing a humanistic and artistic approach.
