Giorgio Olivero: Crossing Boundaries

"Openness is the New Normal"
In recent years a novel combination of open hardware platforms, open-source tools, open licenses and digital fabrication machines have created a solid ground for the explosion of innovative projects and social innovation fuelled by the collaborative DIY ethos of 'makers' culture and new educational practices.

Giorgio is Design Director at TODO, a design studio and innovation consultancy based in Italy. At TODO he has led projects for clients such as Arduino, Bank of Italy, Nike, Fiat, Doha Film Institute, MTV and many other companies, museums and institutions. His works embrace interactive experiences as main design medium, as well visual and strategic design. Giorgio received his Masters Degree in Interaction Design from the Interaction Design Institute Ivrea. As an educator, he has been teaching at IUAV Venice, VCUQatar, Siena University, SUPSI and Sint Lucas Antwerpen.
