Design, Digested 29

The last design you’ll ever make, designing for the autistic community, cautionary tales from cryptoland, the problem with Nielsen Norman Group videos and more.



About Fujufilm

Fujifilm cameras have an internal battery built to retain the settings. If left too long without the main battery inserted, it will empty, resetting the camera.




Week 1: Dizziness

In a bid to write more frequently, and to track events that might go overlooked, I’m starting to write weeknotes. I’m enjoining other people’s weekly reports because they feel personal. They could also be a good way to remind ourselves how many things we accomplish as opposed to what we perceive. Let’s start!


Gender-neutral language

This week: inclusive language, the work of women designers, and the healing power of photography.


Back to the lake

After almost two years, I’m back to Lake Maggiore, visiting my family.


Entrance with art

Stepping into our new house for the summer, I wonder: how is it to live close to so much beauty? Art, architecture, poetry, food. This entrance is just the start.


My latest letter

Every couple of weeks, I write a letter to the nice people subscribed to Design, Digested. Today, I want to share the latest with you. As there weren’t any new blog posts or projects to announce, I didn’t know what to write. Yet, I ended up writing a lot.


Wisteria in bloom

Before the weather turned chilly again, we’ve enjoyed very mild temperatures. It’s easy to think the winter has gone, when the temperature is 22ºC and the flowers are blooming.


At the beach

In a couple of days, the Emilia-Romagna region is going to see stricter Covid-19 restrictions. So I seized the moment and took a few pictures at the beach.


A healthy walk in the pine forest

A pine forest looks and smells so good it’s impossible to resist it. It’s a great feature to have close to home, as an alternative to walking on the beach or staring at a screen.


I deactivated my Instagram account. What now?

If it sounds like a big deal, it’s because it is. For someone passionate about photography, deciding to break with one of the most popular social networks might seem counter-productive.

After the rain

Today, I used the tripod to take a few short videos in the garden. I took time to appreciate my surroundings after a rain shower.


New journey and new blog

New journey and new blog for my husband and I to record thoughts, experiences and memories. After nine years, we’re going back to our home country, Italy, where we’ll stay until the pandemic is under control.


Pictures that make me happy

During the past sweltering weekend, I looked for a few pictures to make my website more personal: not many other things in photography make me happy as nature and a shallow depth of field.


Today I saw

It’s that itch again. Today I saw something I like but can’t take a picture. Or, I can and do, but it doesn’t work on Instagram.


Isolation photo diary

Between the ups and downs of the global pandemic and lockdown, I kept taking pictures. I intended to have a photo diary to describe my take on isolation and the extraordinary circumstances we’re living.


How Instagram drained my creativity

While I was focusing on things like the number of followers, engagement and reach, Instagram drained my creativity. Here’s how my love for photography helped.




Four days in Bordeaux

A few weeks ago, my husband and I travelled outside the UK for a different reason other than visiting family and friends: we spent four days in Bordeaux.


Girl Town moved to Tel Aviv

The exhibition celebrates the culture of the female in the 21th century. By Shutter Hub, hosted at Albert Gallery.



Shutter Hub Open 2017 at Retina Photography Festival

I am excited and honoured to announce that my photo The Day I Glimpsed Inside Your Soul will be part of the Shutter Hub Open Exhibition 2017, at the Retina Scottish International Photography Festival.



By night

It is still too dark when commuting back from work, so I started taking pictures by night.


I have a thing for trees

Going through last year’s photos, I found quite a few of them have trees as a subject. Trees are fascinating and elegant, no matter the season. They can easily set the mood of a photo.


The Berlin fascination

Berlin is well known for being a fresh ever-changing city. By walking around, you see it’s headed somewhere. Only, the destination is unknown and nobody is running.


A glimpse of the sea

A short holiday in Cromer, and the excitement of getting to the sea, reminded me of my childhood summer holidays.


Shutter Hub Open Exhibition 2016

From 24 June 2016, for a month, one of my photos was part of the Shutter Hub OPEN Exhibition 2016 at Hot Numbers, in Cambridge.
