• Who I am
    My name is Michele (pronounced /miˈkɛle/ or mee-KEH-leh), I was born in Milan, Italy, in 1987. I'm a graphic designer, animator, and narrator. I studied, in university, all these three topics. I'm in love with discovering different cultures, learning languages, and every single piece of experience able to turn my worlds upside down. My interests are sometimes far too broad, leading me to try to embed a lot of things into my artefacts. I love to work on the human experience into this world, trying to communicate it in a simple and deep way at the same time. I tend to work better with other people, therefore I'm always in search of people willing to collaborate with me.
