Over the years in relationship with Orange design studio I went through different phases of creative work, moving from ‘industrial design three- dimensional animation, video editing to the field in which I have followed some corporate presentations, creating effects compositing of video and 3D animations, to show the construction or renovation of buildings and tourist villas, residential, industrial.
This special style allows to display objects, buildings, environments, first from the technical point of view, and then in a realistic setting. For some projects I have made some special effects in post production, always with the technique of compositing video/3d. In the field of industrial design I worked to achieve many sports watches on behalf of a large industry of Hong Kong, designed for various sports brands such as Speedo, Suunto, Polar, Garmin, as well as bike computer, with its measurement pods.
The creative process is then concluded with the creation of business presentations in Flash, on the products in question, but also to show creative concepts, trends and trends related to the products, but also proposals for business partnerships, such as the acquisition of licenses brand, still in the field of sports watches, or for children, such as Superga, Cactus, Dunlop, Slazenger.
In many cases I have also realized the transposition of paper presentations, as well as I realized catalogues, posters, leaflets, hang tags, some product lines to the school on behalf of Giochi Preziosi, the Superga brand, products such as stationery, notebooks and diaries.
In a collaboration with the University of Genova - LIRA-Lab, Department of Computer and System Sciences, creating the logo for the project I-Cub, I also made some multimedia presentations, some posters and brochures. I also created several Flash web sites, some listed below, made for the promotion of bags, and various other business activities.
I realized the concept of window displays, packaging, exhibition stands, always linked to the development of the products listed above.
