Luca Toscano Otto

Digital Designer

Hi my name is Luca, for friends Otto!
I work as a Digital Designer and I design those experiences that spring from the combination of physical products and digital frameworks, with an holistic interest in the entire user-service ecosystem and the touch points that this provides.

As a digital designer with an industrial design background experience, I have been involved in the development of connected products, user interfaces, web and mobile platforms and physical spaces for international customers in professional and consumer sectors.

I consider myself an extremely curious individual, with many interests and I dedicate to everything I do with great passion, care and dedication. I love working as a team, sharing and exchanging opinions, but I have the necessary skills to carry out a task independently. I am flexible in my work but I give my best when I can dedicate myself to a project vertically. I have a natural inclination to put things in order in an analytical way, to visualize an idea and to approach problems in a strategic way, always trying to create new opportunities for my personal and professional growth.

Feel free to get in touch, I’m always thrilled about new experiences!
