I’m a digital designer with a strong interest in new technologies and their influences in our everyday life

Standard Bio

During my teenage years I co-founded GameSoul, an Italian virtual community about the art of making amateur video games, with more than a thousand members. I got really excited about the idea of creating a digital space where people can share their own interests. And since then, I’ve been tinkering with web technologies and digital interfaces.

I taught myself the basic principles of web design and development and I started working as web designer and front-end developer in a local company first (2005–2008), then in a Milan-based company (2008-2009) after my high school diploma.

I soon realised that a serious design process can make a huge difference. Therefore I enrolled in the Communication Design course at Politecnico di Milano, where I broadened my knowledge of typography, branding, editorial design and design history.

I’m currently working as digital designer at MotorK with key responsibilities in the design of DriveK products and services

Technicalities

Web I have solid experience in writing HTML and CSS (SASS as pre-processor). Basic knowledge of Javascript.

User Interface Design I use Sketch to design user interfaces. I’m currently interested in learning Framer for interactive prototypes.

Graphic Design I have a good knowledge of InDesign and Illustrator. During my Bachelor studies I learnt how to deal with small digital print operators.

Programming I’m able to understand basic structures of common programming languages, therefore I can collaborate with engineers and developers with ease.

Toolbox I use Sublime Text, Atom and Grunt/Gulp for coding. I have a good knowledge of Git and Command Line.
