Technology allowed for my personal and professional growth. My ambition is now to partake these benefits with those who are less affected by technological advancements and

make technology accessible.

🇪🇺

I’m Giona Fossati, a passionate UX Designer with a strong international attitude. Although I’ve been raised in Italy, I like to define myself as European!

My Past

I have a Double MSc Degree in Human-Computer Interaction and Design from the University of Paris-Sud and Polytechnic of Madrid. I obtained a Bachelor's Degree in Interfaces and Technologies of Communication at the University of Trento, Italy. My Master Course focuses on developing specialized design skills and complementing them with business development knowledge. My academic path has a strong focus on the point of contact between UX Design, Cognitive Science, and Accessibility and Inclusive Design.

I have experience in the industry, I worked as a UX Designer Intern in Belka, and Product Designer in Smarterp, plus numerous experiences in developing projects for academic or personal purposes.

I spent the last two years and a half between France and Spain, firstly for my Erasmus and then attending my first and second year of Masters at Université Paris-Saclay and the Polytechnic University of Madrid. 

My Present

I'm currently based in Madrid, Spain. I recently graduated in Human-Computer Interaction & Design and I am looking for job opportunities in the major technological hubs in Europe and the USA.

My Future

For the immediate future, I am looking for a stimulating company in which I would like to share what I learned so far and contribute to their and my growth. In 5 years I want to be able to take responsibility for leading digital product projects to production and contribute to train junior designers.

Particular Traits

Pragmatic

I believe that the best products are born through the contamination of ideas between engineering, business, and design.

...is about communication

i love to be proved wrong

I see critics as a way to learn and improve. Best ideas are the ones that are proven to work better, without regard to who had them.

Curious

My knowledge ranges from coding to project management. I keep learning by attending workshops and following online courses from the Interaction Design Foundation.

...is about communication

Aligning client’s and designer’s views is key: that's why my Bachelor thesis – based on the book Articulating
Design Decisions di Tom Greever – focused on how to effectively communicate design decisions to stakeholders.

Synthesis of findings and ideation of new features delight me: paper prototyping and wireframing are my strengths.
