my name is Gabriella.
I am an Italian designer

I love to observe, to explore, to learn, to share.
When I design services and experiences, I always care to tell meaningful stories and create environments inspired by life and arts.
I particularly care about ethics 🤝 and values ❤️️ in my life, in my projects and in the companies and teams I join.
I am currently exploring mostly circular 🌱 and systems 🧩 design, particularly for services, experiences and enterprises.
I experienced extremely different projects and activities: body art, illustration, copywriting, print and web design, school teaching with adults or children, user research, street art, web marketing.
I started to work as a graphic designer and copywriter in Florence, Italy 🇮🇹 in 2006 for advertising and marketing agencies. There I graduated from both the University of Florence and the Nemo Academy of Arts, also attending parallel courses and workshops about cinema, comics, drawing and marketing. Then I moved back to Naples, my hometown, in 2008 and kept working in advertising and branding, while slowly moving towards web design and copywriting.
I moved to Paris 🇫🇷 in 2013. After a 8-months job at McDonald’s cleaning toilets and cooking hamburgers, I took my chance and started working as a designer again, in different design agencies or as a contractor.
Today, I live in Paris where I work as a designer at Orange Group, helping the company to make their services and experiences more circular and responsible.
As an art director and UX/UI designer I worked for clients of all types.
