Hi y'all! I'm Alice Colombo, a young designer based in
Shanghai, London, Milan.
I have studied and worked as Communication and Service designer and occasionally as freelance illustrator.
My aim is to merge design and innovation to answer to global challenges, promoting social and sustainable changes in our lifes, without forgetting to enjoy independent thinking, free creating, equal sharing and mutual progressing.
You might find me doodling while I listen to a podcast, or downloading another book to add to my list but mostly pushing myself to do a good job. Without forgetting to take a break once in a while for a snack.
I graduated from Politecnico di Milano where I obtained my Bachelor degree in Communication design and a Master degree in Product, Service and System design with focus on social impact and communities building. Over the last year I lived in Shanghai where I attended the 同济大学 - Tongji University and gained my Master in Design and Innovation. Over the past years I've been working in China, Italy and UK, gaining experience in Service design, User research, UX design and Design thinking.
