All Media Design & Communication
Graphic Design | Milan Area, Italy, IT
My career has been a learning route through technologies and creativity, experiencing through the years new languages, new channels and new media. For almost 20 years I keep on looking forward for the next frontiers in communication technologies and creative expression, and this is the philosophy I still have and for which today my clients still choose me.
1994-1999: I worked across the 90s as a freelance graphic and multimedia designer, going from paper, to CD-Rom production and finally to the web during those early years.
2000-2005: Since 2000 my work has progressively shifted to project management and consulting in the communication, marketing and content area.
2006-2011: After some years spent on design for television and cross-media/viral projects, for national and international clients, I started to specialize on some specific design and communication niche, like travels, luxury and healthcare.
2011-today: on par with the creative work for national and international clients, I'm working as a front-end developer for web and mobile apps, integrating my creative skills with programming expertise on many different frameworks and platforms.
