Multidisclipinary Designer | Content Creator | PhD Student
curriculum vitae ITA
Hi! I am Federica. I love creating contents, designing projects following all the steps: data and field research, definition of a concept, visual and technical development, from sketches to products, from photos to prototype, from videos to website, both to document the process or promote it.
I like both contact with data and with people.
I believe in targeting and at the same time in inclusive design.
What do I do? I’m currently a PhD student with a scholarship in Design at the University of Genoa, Department of Architecture and Design.
My research focuses on issues related to inclusion, the normalisation of Assistive Technology, Interaction Design, New Media Arts.
Here, at the Department of Architecture and Design, I am also a teaching assistant in Design Fundamentals to the Product and Communication Design Bachelor Degree students. At the same time, I’m a teaching assistant and subject expert in Web and Interaction Design at the Digital Humanities Master Course at Savona University Campus.
So, I never stop working to a huge variety of projects!
I’m also a co-founder of SUPER-FROM.
How I got there? I gained a Bachelor’s Degree in Fashion Design and Multimedia Arts – Arts Curriculum at IUAV University of Venice in 2016; then the Master’s Degree in Communication Design at PoliMi, Polytechnic University of Milan in 2019. I also spent a period abroad, thanks to the Erasmus + program, studying Multimedia Design and Sound and Image at ESAD.cr, the Art and Design headquarters of the Polytechnic of Leiria, based in Caldas da Rainha.
However, I’ve been simultaneously working with photography, videomaking and social media (see a selection of projects here).
Travelling is something I can’t give up in order to improve my way of thinking and designing. It is crucial to change my mind and improve my knowledge thanks to the places I can get to know – on the other side of the world as well as a few minutes away from where I live.
