With a background in digital advertising, I am specialized in web and mobile design, with a passion for lettering and illustration. During my 5 years' experience I have worked across a wide range of projects: from social media campaigns to visual and UI/UX design. Experienced in leading a small creative team and mentoring junior designers I have worked as a UI design teacher in one of the best communication academies in Italy. Part of the CSS Design Awards judging panel, my work has been featured on Bechance, AIGA gallery, One Page Love, and many others.

Work history

Currently

Teacher

AANT

Oct 2014
  • Rome, Italy
  • Freelance
  • At AANT I had the opportunity of training young designers on web and mobile UI design. I have worked with 5 classes across a 2 years’ experience, for a total of more than 100 students. I created a program of conceptual and practical lessons in order to teach students how to manage responsive web design and mobile projects through all of their stages: from wire-framing, to design and prototyping. Oversaw the students during the process of creating icon sets, landing pages, responsive websites and mobile apps, recreating real work situations through complex briefs and tight deadlines, because we all know it’s a cruel world out there.
