Featured Studio: Betta Design

Three years ago Roberta Montorfano made Australia her home and since then has worked hard to follow her dreams and achieve her goal of designing every day for herself. A year and a half ago she launched Betta Design and is now working with the iconic Australian brands (Seafolly, RipCurl, Peter Alexander, Minkpink…) Roberta’s passion for textile and design is some of the strongest you’ll encounter, and her work is painstakingly detailed and truly breathtaking. We hope you enjoy learning more about Roberta and her studio today!

IMG_0949About Betta Design director/designer, Roberta Montorfano

“Roberta is an Italian-Mexican textile and graphic designer, based in Sydney, Australia but with her heart and mind all around the world. Growing up in Italy in the small northern city of Como, the Italian capital of silk, Roberta was constantly surrounded by colours, textiles, history and art. After 5 years of experience in textile design in Italy, participating at international textile fairs in China, USA, Brazil and Europe, she decided to move to Sydney in 2013 to continue her career in design and fulfil her dreams. She believes that everyone can tell stories through design, art, photography and colours – they are all a portrait of your soul, history, family and generation you carry with you.”
