As a fashion designer, homewares designer, surface pattern illustrator and design manager his expertise covers the whole creative process. From Trend Research & Design Intelligence to Product Development & Communication, both for international leading companies and CSR organisations. /The common thread throughout this professional journey is the use of drawing as a means for making ideas and inspiration tangible, enabling new strategic tools for decision-making, as well as for generating more engagement and empathic brand communication. /His expertise in analysing complex systems & communicating these in simple formats, constructing visual metaphors and ethnographic insights along with a natural sense of excellence makes his work a great asset to your project.

  • Mind Map: "The GOOD Download Podcast"
    Mind Map: "The GOOD Download Podcast"Last week I discovered The GOOD Download Podcast, recently launched by GOOD Agency.

  • Mind Map: "Universal Basic Income: An Open Conversation"
    Mind Map: "Universal Basic Income: An Open Conversation"As a member of NOW!ForHumanity I was part of an open conversation on Universal Basic Income, a new financial aid model that has been tested for years and is now becoming more relevant than ever.

I faced the challenge of breaking common conceptions and decided to use whimsical visual metaphors in order to communicate the content in an accurate and engaging manner.
