What comes to mind when you think about your studies at HMKW?
When I think of HMKW, I think of how my studies made me move to Berlin and start my new life and professional life here. During my studies I got to know some of my closest friends in Berlin. The move to a different university system - I did my bachelor's degree in Italy at an art school - as well as the completely different learning environment told me on many levels something about the organization and interaction within different cultural systems.
You acquired a Master of Arts in Communication Design at HMKW Berlin. What is your current job position?
At the moment I work as a freelance designer and video editor. When it comes to my actual job in relation to my studies, it has definitely helped me to take media law courses, to focus on the psychological aspects of interacting with clients and to generally experience how design and psychology are connected. The fact that I was in a multicultural environment has also helped me to better learn how to communicate with people from different cultural backgrounds.
Did you get any further work experiences prior to your current position that you would like to share with us?
Before my master's degree I worked for a cinema production company here in Berlin. I worked as an animator for the film "Butterflies in Berlin" and then also worked as a social media manager. It was definitely a fun experience to work on an animated film and even when it came to managing the company's social media channels, the job felt quite natural considering the communication and graphic design tools I was equipped with during my studies.
