About me

Hello, my name is Simone Ferraro and I design digital environments for human beings.
I'm currently working at the BBC in London

I'm a passionate design-thinker as much as an enthusiast self-taught coder & UI designer and I got a UX/IA Master Degree at IULM University in Milan, Italy.

I'm a UX Collective writer and former Interaction Design Foundation (Denmark) & Architecta (Italy) member.

Besides, I really love music (I'm a former DJ, radio speaker and music journalist), photography and every form of visual art.

I started working on digital products over twelve years ago. After running my own digital agency called Nutek in Turin and after working as a UX Consultant at Zurich Insurance LTD in Milan I am now UX Architect at the BBC in London.

I enjoy working as member of a cross-functional team and I love Agile software development methods and iterative design.

For more detailed info about the projects I have been involved into please contact me directly.
