MY PROCESS


WHETHER IT WOULD BE A PHYSICAL PRODUCT OR AN UNTAGEABLE SOLUTION THE APPROACH IS THE SAME: “WHY”.


WHY?WHY?WHY?WHY?WHY? AND IF THAT DID  NOT WORK, DID YOU MAKE SURE YOU ASKED: WHY? 





COMPREHENSION


I WANT TO UNDERSTAND EVERYTHING ABOUT YOUR PROJECT AND DEVISE A BETTER SOLUTION. USING KEY SKILLS IN RESEARCH, OBSERVATION AND DATA ANALYTIC COMPREHENSION, TO BETTER ASSESS THE CURRENT SITUATION.


IDEATION



THE SKY'S THE LIMIT. CREATE A THOUSAND IDEAS AND SELECTING THE ONE THAT MAKES MOST SENSE.

PRODUCTION


ONCE THE DESIGN HAS BEEN CHOSEN, AND BEFORE MOVING TO PRODUCTION, I PROTOTYPE IN ORDER TO TEST OUT IDEAS.

PHILOSOPHY



“TO DESIGN IS TO DEVISE COURSES OF ACTION, AIMED AT CHANGING EXISTING SITUATIONS, INTO PREFERRED ONES”, A QUOTE BY HERBERT SIMON.


I TRULY BELIEVE THAT BY COMPOSING A COURSE OF ACTION THAT IS MORE NATURAL, YOU ARE ABLE TO CREATE A MORE FUNCTIONAL AND BEAUTIFUL DESIGN. IN EFFECT, FORM FOLLOWS FUNCTION AND FUNCTION FOLLOWS USER.







UX / UI

FOCUS ON THE END-TO-END JOURNEY BETWEEN USER AND EVERYDAY PRODUCTS. COMBINING ASPECTS OF PSYCHOLOGY, MARKET RESEARCH, DESIGN, AND TECHNOLOGY, TO CREATE PRODUCTS AND SERVICES, SUCH AS WEBSITES, APPS.

3D

FROM 3D MODELING TO 3D PRINTING, BRING A CONCEPT AND A IDEATION TO LIFE BY TESTING IT OUT IN THE REAL WORLD.



ID

CLASSICALLY TRAINED IN INDUSTRIAL DESIGN, THE GOAL IS TO FOCUS ON THE METHODOLOGY AND THE WHYS RATHER THAN JUMP INTO AN END SOLUTION AND PRODUCT.
