An artist and photographer in his own right, Sergio Fontana obtained his Degree in Graphic Design at the Universidad Católica de Valparaíso, Chile. He began his career in an advertising agency, designing newspaper advertising, promotional materials and newsletters.

At INACAP in Santiago, he taught graphic design, typography, signage, point-of-sale materials, and visual merchandising.

Broad experience in design led to his appointment as Art Director of a publishing house in Santiago, where he was responsible for all aspects of book design and production, primarily of educational titles.

He moved to Australia in 1988, and started working with Macmillan Education Australia as a Senior Designer.

Sergio finally established Fontana Design in 2000, progressively expanding his services over the years to include web design and corporate branding.

He currently liaises with authors, editors, illustrators and other experts to provide the range of services for which he has become known.
