EMILIA MATARESE

INDUSTRIAL DESIGN

ABOUT

I am a hands-on maker with a background in industrial design, focused on creativity through problem-solving and technical processes. My design journey has taught me to approach challenges as opportunities to solve puzzles, driven by curiosity and material experimentation. Without experimentation, there’s no chance of learning something new.

I am eager to join a studio that values attention to detail, where I can bring my commitment to the craft and further develop my construction skills. I look forward to continuing to build with my hands and exploring all that design has to offer. I am confident that my dedication and hands-on experience will contribute positively to any creative team.
