The story about how my passion for design started is actually really funny.
Once upon a time (15 years ago) I joined a band called "Mashrooms" as a guitar player. As the band was doing its first steps in the music world we needed a website, so a friend of ours offered to make it for free. Being his contact, I was very excited about the website - so excited that I was sending him emails 2 or 3 times a day with updates, gigs, pictures, new songs and suggestions for improvements.
A couple of weeks later, my friend called to say there was too much content and he couldn't handle the workload. I stopped by his place and within 15 minutes he explained to me how to take care of the website on my own. This was a turning point.
Slowly, I started to understand how much I love dealing with design and visual communication. In the beginning it was very difficult and I made many mistakes, so many that the website was full of bugs and changed its shape almost every week.
This is where my passion was born. Today, I want to say Mille Grazie, to my teacher, Francesco C.
After gaining some experience in Italy, I moved to Berlin where I live and work as a Freelance Designer. Lendico (Rocket Internet Venture), George Concierge, Proftrack, WunderAgent and Avuba are just a few companies I have had the privilege of leading, working for and learning from in the last four years.
Today I'm very proud to be Founder and Art Director of Futuring, my own creative agency, based in Berlin with professionals from all around the globe!
