Passion, dedication and hard work are the key words of my way to work. Passion represents love for what I'm doing. Dedications means sacrifice for what I love. Hard work is the perseverance in trying to achieve my goals. I like to face problems, deeply analyze them and come up with new ideas and solutions. The best way to find a good idea is having lots of ideas. Someone call this creativity, but creativity is not an innate aptitude, is rather the ability to keep our curiosity alive. I keep mine alive through the desire to learn and improve.
"I like the way it is, but I'll work to make it better!"
I spent one year following the Interaction Design & Technologies programme at Chalmers University of Technologies, where I followed the Aesthetic of Interaction course, I worked with Prototyping in Interaction Design, and Interaction Design Methodologies. During my studies I had the opportunity to learn and try how to evaluate usability, to experiment evaluation methodologies, and techniques for exploring user experience.
I worked a lot with Web Design and redesign. I learned the rules and the principles at the University of Udine and then I applied and developed my skills with several work projects. I also studied for a few months Graphical Interfaces and Information Visualization. What I love the most is designing the user experience.
Many of the work projects I made are web based applications and websites. I design with Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator, and I develop mainly with html5, CSS3, PHP, jQuery and Java.
In the last year I started a new interest: designing and developing for mobile devices. During my studies at Chalmers University of Technologies, I had the opportunity to follow a Mobile Computing course and I started developing for iOS platform.
Due also to my master thesis project, in the last year I worked on the gesture hinting topic for my master thesis project "Cicero: A Concept for Gesture Hinting on Mobile Devices".
I like to spend some of my spare time by designing new shapes and concepts, trying to express concepts and ideas through simple images. I'm far from beeing a graphical designer, but I like to express myself also through these tools. It relaxes me, and sometimes the result makes me proud of myself.
Beside the shapes and lines that I paint, there is always a rational that I want to express. I like to explain why and how I try to convey the meaning of the represented concept.
