Hello. My name is Valentino and I'm a Product Designer.
In more than 10 years of experience, I have been able to craft useful and pleasant products in the most different industries by engaging complex UX methodologies and best practices in the interface's design.
I am creative, ambitious, self-driven and empathetic.
I'm used to working in agile environments with multi-disciplinary teams.

From fashion to design

I started working as a model at the age of 16.
At my 19’s I went professional and traveled the world. I believe I owe most of my social skills to it. With my 26 I got my first paid freelancing and with 28 my first design job.
At the age of 34, I got my BA in Design and with 37 my Post Graduation in Digital Marketing.
Worker by day, student by night.

“In 2013 I was distinguished with the award for Best IADE University Student in the Design Course”.

Hobbies

I have a wonderful wife and two kids which I love more than anything. They push me forward.
Apart from singing, playing the guitar, boxing and drawing, I love to study design but also to learn about random stuff and to constantly challenge the status quo of almost everything: What can be improved? How would I do it?
