Hey, I'm Paola, and I'm a UX Designer based in Milan 👋

I wanted to be a comic artist, but it ended up I started working as a web designer to pay for my expensive comic art school and, since then, designing interfaces for digital products has been my biggest passion.

This long journey started in 2004 when the internet was simpler and mysterious, and I survived all the eras of the web, witnessing its evolution. I have worked in several environments, from agencies to freelancing, but in 2016 I joined my first Product company and fell in love with Product culture.

I love to design always having Data in mind, I’m obsessed with Usability and my motto is “Keep it simple”. My principal areas of study are: Usability, A/B testing, Design system, Dark Patterns, Accessibility, DesignOPS.
