Work Experience

Aloop - Visual & Science

Ceo and founder, Motion Graphic Designer

Aloop is a Barcelona based visual studio with an original focus on popular science and animation. Founded by Michele Sclafani (PhD in molecular quantum optics) and Alessandro Lo Cascio (visual artist and filmmaker), we combined our love for animation and science to design motion graphic videos and illustrations to support scientific publications and promote research projects for the scientific community, business channels and general audience.
