About me

Hello, my name is Simone Ferraro and I design digital environments for human beings.

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 an 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.

To learn more about my professional skills and my works, you can also visit my LinkedIn profile or visit the good old Nutek website (italian).

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