Strengths

I like to mediate the communication between designers, developers and client.
I like to have process, I design with a timeline.

I manage the design process in all of its phases, both in the world of screen as much as in the physical design field. During the early phases, I can give my contribute with a deep understanding of latest trends in design, music and new technologies. I can manage design sessions to work on solutions for the product, following service design principles both with engaging in good conversations.

Practically, I’m good at taking care of the whole process of designing mobile and web interactions. I like to produce myself detailed and clear flowcharts and animations to share with users and colleagues. I’m eventually producing nice graphic interfaces. I like to have an overall view of the team knowledge to join different pieces together, and follow the product with continuous design checks.


Skills

I have a good knowledge of the complete Adobe Creative Suite, Sketch, Zeplin, Invision and I am a quick software learner. I can roughly code in HTML and CSS (this is a DIY website). I have a basic knowledge of Bootstrap and Processing, and feel comfortable at reading most of the programming languages. I also have a very good knowledge of audio editing on Logic, Ableton, and analog devices. I have a general knowledge on how to shoot pictures and videos and what to do with it. I can use most of the management tools available on the internet, even if sometimes I prefer a simple word doc.


Languages
My mother tongue is Italian. I speak a fluent English. I can read and write German but I'm still not very good at speaking it. I can read Portuguese.
