A personal statement about my research

I started to study graphic design in the 80s, the decade in which first Apple Macintosh computer was born and Tim Berners-Lee’s idea of the World Wide Web appeared. The nearly twenty years I have been professionally active into graphic design both as a designer and as a teacher I’ve been living with curiosity the transition from printing production paradigm to digital one.

The main questions I ask myself in my research field are related to how graphic designers can better manage the complexity of digital production workflow, and how the development of the WWW could include more graphic design culture when designing on-line media services.
