Legno has become a sought-after speaker and exhibitor throughout the world at museums, universities, conferences and more.
Simone Legno is the creative director and co-founder of tokidoki. Born in Rome, Italy, Legno, drew incessantly as a child. The boxes of chewed, broken and unsharpened pencils he adored as a kid were the beginnings of a passion for art that led to the eventual creation of tokidoki.it, Legno’s online portfolio which quickly grew into a globally distributed brand.
