Development from concept to design of a promotional video for my award winning project/start-up “HE/DE la guía a la ciudad amueblada” (English translation: HE/DE the guide to the furnished city), an app that encourages creative people to share, collect, refurbish and sell furniture abandoned every day on Spanish city streets as a fresh, fun and innovative form of sustainable livelihood, and not only as a way of subsistence of the poor. The guide is now seeking for capital investments and partners/team members who believe in social innovation, willing to contribute unique talents and essential skills to this project.

Development from concept to design of “Il femminile nell’uomo – Volume 1” (translated: The feminine side of men – Volume 1), a project created to promote the feminine side of men. Tasks included: coming up with the creative concept and bringing the idea to life by branding, naming, creating a visual identity, designing packaging, covers, layout and binding the booklet, creating print-ready files.
Each man, like each woman is made of masculine and feminine, rationality and instinct, strength and spirituality, power and sensitivity, as some kind of yin and yang. But why do men use so little their feminine side? Is it because they are embarrassed by it, or they may have forgotten about it?
