Frank was born in Madagascar and reared in Rangoon. No, that's not right. Frank was raised in the jungle with the help of Baloo the Bear and Bagheera the Panther. No, that's just a lie. Frank Angeletti was born in Chicago and attended public school. After graduating from Loyola University, Frank relocated to New York City where his creative prowess ignited. Says Angeletti, "I kissed the folks goodbye, got on a Trailways bus and headed for the big bad apple ...'cause I wanted to be a Rockette. I had 87 dollars in my pocket and seven years of tap lessons.”. Ahem.
Frank began his career in Advertising and Photography in NYC at The Village Voice where he designed Print Ads to Michael Musto's copy. He financed his tenure in NYC with a series of odd lobs: Front Waiter at Gotham, General Manager at Cafe Un Deus Trois (entertaining Liza Minnelli, Meryl Streep, and Sting on a nightly basis) and Bartender at NYC's notorious leather bar, The New York Eagle.
Along the way, he honed his Artistic and Photography chops at the agencies Leo Burnett and Element 79, where he designed and directed Digital and Print Advertising for several luxury clients including Celebrity Cruises, Jaguar Cars, W Hotels, and Nestle Purina alongside Non-Profit initiatives for Gay Men's Health Crisis (GMHC).
In 2007, Time Out NY Magazine hailed his work as "eye-blazing, ear-popping, crotch-pounding design" and listed Angeletti among "20 NYC Artists to Keep Your Eyes On". Throughout his career, his Photography and Design work has graced the pages of GQ, Men’s Health, NY Magazine, Instinct, OUT, Advocate Magazine, Travel and Leisure, and Food & Wine Magazine. Frank is a two time CLIO Award Nominee for his culinary design work with Jenn-Air.
Frank can grow facial hair on a dime, cook a Wild Mushroom and Tarragon Béchamel Lasagna that’ll make ya weep, and quote Lin-Manuel Miranda. At present, he is currently accepting commissions and bookings for 2018 and 2019, and would dig talking to you about your project!
