ABOUT ME

Hello,

I am Giorgio, I come from Monza (Italy), I lived in Lugano (Switzerland) for almost 9 years where I worked for different companies in different fields. I currently live in Turin working as UX designer for Experientia Srl, an international, independent UX research and service design agency. 

I am an interaction designer and an engineer who is interested in how design can affect people’s behavior and also how technology can influence people’s behavior, and how design and technology can be used to improve people’s lives. I enjoy to sensitize people on sustainability and health issues. My aim is to design for outcomes, not just making beautiful stuff. How? Understanding people, undertaking new challenges and thinking beyond boundaries.

I combine research, strategy and design to create human-centred solutions that meet business goals.
