Design career is what mostly reflects my character: I’m a very pragmatic person and it goes along with effectiveness and engineering, but I am extremely curious and inventive as well, and this leads to the aim of always customising, combining or creating objects, spaces, look. Design is a challenge and a good designer has to find the best match among lots of details, ideas, concepts, needs, requirements, functions, cultural and trend hints, aesthetic aspects, brand strategy, budget restrictions, timing, technologies; from scratch to the final product, succeeding in this is like winning a race: it gives you adrenaline and satisfaction, no matter what product is, from a spoon to a city. Career opportunities finally brought me towards retail and display design, which are the sum of functionality and beauty, branding and marketing effectiveness, and in which “on time and cost” is a very must. Above all I’ve become a project manager, that is the high point for a designer, because it gives you the opportunity to bring your project to completion, that is to lead the entire process, step by step, from a privileged point of view and control.
