I previously worked in the emerging markets of the Sub Saharan Africa, developing and supporting brands like Vodafone, Pepsi and Pizza Hut, with the aim to provide Zambia, Uganda, Cameroon, Zimbabwe and Ghana with social connectivity and international culture. In the last year, I have rebranded an e-learning platform for Vodafone and a Telco in Ghana. I started my career working for Inarea, one of the leading Italian agencies in corporate identities.
