Hola! đź‘‹
I'm Franco, a Digital Product Designer based in London

I'm an independent designer with +15 years of experience in the design and digital production business.

I work end-to-end joining and leading teams involved in the creation of Design Systems, Websites and Apps for companies and brands around the world by partnering up with agencies in Europe.

I offer Design Consultancy for small businesses with my company Sangha, helping them with biz strategy and creating ad-hoc teams to deal with their design and marketing needs.

In my spare time, I also co-run Patáforas, a digital surreal fanzine in Spanish and help Biblioteca Popular Astra, an NGO from Patagonia by designing and maintaining their website.

I'm always pushing my boundaries and looking for delivering best-in-class stuff – life's too short for 💩 products.
