DESIGN INTERN

During my studies at NABA I had a small but fun experience as intern at Atelier Biagetti. Since the Atelier operates in different fields I had the privilege to be involved various projects, from product design and 3D modeling to graphic design.

 

 

 

 

EDUCATION

 

KONSTFACK - MFA IN INDUSTRIAL DESIGN  

2013 - 2015

The Industrial design department at Konstfack is based on design exploration and experimentation. A big focus within the education is devoted to design research. The learning of design methods, processes and the application of the critical thinking in the design process are important tools that Konstfack has given me to face my career as Industrial designer.

 

 

 

NABA - BA IN DESIGN

2007 - 2010

Inspired by a “learning by doing” philosophy, the BA in Design at Naba alternates and integrates theoretical studies with experiential workshops. Beside giving me the basic tools for designing, such as model making, 2D & 3D visualization, the university has taught me to think "laterally", which together with the problem solving, have been crucial design tools until now.
