Statement I am an Italian designer born in the beautiful Sicily, renowned for marvellous scenarios and wild life. Grew up close to the sea and surrounded by nature, I have learnt to respect her and to listen to her. This is why, as a designer, I like to find inspiration for my work by looking at her. My dogma is “keep it simple”, I seek for the minimal avoiding the unnecessary, stay focused and get to the point.

(BASED ON OUR INITIAL RESEARCH; OUR SURVEY, AND INTERVIEW, AS WELL AS OUR OWN OBSERVATIONS)
DO YOU PREFER SEEING DIGITAL OR PRINTED
IF YOU HAD THE CHOICE BETWEEN TAKING FILM OR DIGITAL
PHOTOS AND WHY?
PHOTOS, WHICH ONE WOULD YOU PREFER AND WHY?
“... It is deﬁnitely more of emotional value when it is printed” BY CHRISTIAN BY CHRISTIAN
WHAT ARE YOUR INSPIRATIONS? “Instagram, fashion photography, always jealous of peoples instagrams so I want to be as good as them. “Check out my life travelling the world its great” BY EMMA
MAIN ISSUES WITH DIGITAL VS FILM FILM : VERY TECHNICAL PROCESS. CAN BE REDEVELOPED INTO PHOTOS, LIKE A PHYSICAL RAW FILE. MUST BE HANDLED CAREFULLY. FILM / PHOTOS CAN BE EASILY DAMAGED BEFORE DEVELOPED DIGI DIGITAL : CONTAIN A LOT OF INFO YOU’RE NOT AWARE OF; LOCATION, DATE, TIME ETC. GENERALLY MORE CONVENIENT EASIER TO EDIT EASIER TO SHARE, VIA APPS, INTERNET, SMARTPHONES
WAYS TO SOLVE THESE PROBLEMS : Restrict the number of photo people take? Make them more precious?
DIGITAL CAN BE CORRUPTED EASY TO ACCIDENTALLY DELETE CAN’T RELY ON SOCIAL MEDIA TO KEEP PHOTOS SAFE ADVANCING TECHNOLOGY COULD RENDER OUR CURRENT DIGITAL FORMATS OBSOLET PHONES : TOO EASY TO TAKE PHOTOS
Find a way to make photos more valuable again People like having printed photos - make it easier / more accessable somehow? Film cameras(disposable) are fun because they’re cheap and suspensful
‘UNLIMITED’ NUMBER OF PHOTOS GAVE EVERYONE THE ABILITY TO BE A ‘PHOTOGRAPHER’, APPS AND AUTOMATIC SETTINGS
Make developing SLR/Films easier or create a blend of digital convenience with the fun of SLR
