Designer Profile

๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿผ My name is Piera Mattioli. I’m a passionate Service Designer who believes in the power of Human-Centered design as a tool to create a more equal, inclusive, sustainable and healthy world, where all the voices are taken into account in the decision-making process.

๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡ท Half Italian, half Argentinian, I was born in the middle of Italy and raised in a spanish-speaking family. I grew up with an international mindset and developed a strong capability to emphatise with different cultures and a passion for diversity.

๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿฝโ€๐Ÿ’ป I have been lucky to have had access to exchange programs to study in USA and South Africa, and to learn Design in a world class university – Politecnico di Milano.

๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿฝโ€๐ŸŽ“ I have a master degree in Product Service System Design and a post-certificate in Social Innovation Management at Amani Institute.

๐ŸŒŽ With a nomadic heart, I have worked in different countries and, in between of experiences, travelled around.
๐ŸŒˆ When backpacking in South America I discovered the passion for painting murals and since then, I am always searching for new walls to transform.

โœจ I work remotely as an independent Service Designer while travelling the world, and in-person with the most diverse range of cultures in projects that matter.
