UX designer & Art director.
Enthusiastic about future and cosmos.
Applying a beginner’s mind to minimalism, meditation and fatherhood.
I was born in Palermo (Italy) on January 7, 1985 and I’ve always had a great passion for art, drawing and design.
Working as a graphic designer since 2006 and holding positions in several companies, I’ve gained a wide experience in editorial and web-oriented design, as well as in branding, art direction, illustration and user experience design.
I’m fascinated by complexity as an intellectual challenge and I strive for simplicity as the product of creativity and good design. I value the integrity of my work above all: every element should be meaningful, honest and harmonious with the whole.
In 2009 I got a Bachelor’s deegree in Visual Arts at the University of Palermo. In September 2010 I moved to Milan, in a perspective of personal and professional development.
After leaving the role of Senior Designer at We Are Social, in 2015 I started my own Design firm GBX Studio.
In 2018, I started teaching design and art direction principles to young students at IED and NABA in Milan.
