Designer Interview of Andrea Caucino:
DI: Could you please tell us more about your art and design background? What made you become an artist/designer? Have you always wanted to be a designer?
AC : I remember when I was a child I had a passion for art and I saw in the paintings the representation of the artist's state of mind in that precise moment of his life, something that probably a few days later would have been painted differently. This is how my passion was born, a journey in search of future creative languages.
DI: What is "design" for you?
AC : Design is the creative vision of the future living in the present.

AC : Man will always be the father of all creative ideas, technology will never be able to carry out this task for us.
DI: How would you describe your design style? What made you explore more this style and what are the main characteristics of your style? What's your approach to design?
