About

Today, companies are facing a complex scenario. Physical and digital have merged; objects, experiences and services have become completely integrated; and communication has turned into a prerequisite simply to exist.

In this fluid reality, products, interfaces, environments or communication channels are all part of what customers and stakeholders perceive as a continuum.

To be successful, brands must shape this entire continuum and convey clear, consistent value and meaning.

Fabio Besti Intedisciplinary Design works with organizations and brands internationally and helps them design this ecosystem of meaning, artifacts and relational touchpoints.

Branding & Visual
Digital & User Experience
Product & industrial
Teaching & Research
Strategy & Innovation
Space & Interiors

We don’t see the physical qualities of things but what they mean to us, what they can afford us to do with them, how they could affect us –  Klaus Krippendorff

 

 

Interdisciplinary Design

Fabio Besti Interdisciplinary Design Approach

I hold a Master Degree in Product Design for Innovation at Politecnico di Milano.

Since 2010 I’ve been helping companies with visual branding and graphic design. Between 2013 and 2014 I’ve worked in the field of architecture, first as an intern at Total Tool in Milan and later as Creative Coordinator & Design Manager at DiBari Innovation Design in Miami. I successfully operate in the field of Interaction Design and UX/UI, since my first work with Nicepeopleatwork in 2012. I’ve been intensely active in this area between 2015 and 2016 when I co-founded Enjoymuseum and served as Head of Design & User Experience.

I conduct also research and teaching activities. My interest focuses on the challenges that technological innovation brings into society and life, as the border between atoms and bits continues to blur. I created and conducted courses, workshops and lectures for schools such as Domus Academy and Politecnico di Milano.

With my design studio I have a long-term partnership with Giannino Bassetti Foundation, together we work with policy-makers, civil society organizations, universities and private companies to foster Responsible Innovation.
