Paolo  D’Ippolito  works  in the fields of industrial design and communication from 1995, with forays into copywriting, graphic design, fiction and scriptwriting.
He bases his projects on an idea he strongly chases, supporting it with clean lines, appropriate technologies and, sometimes, the complicity of irony.
He prefers team work and a tight close synergistic relationship with design companies.
Ideas for a multi-expressive design vision.
