Alessia joined STBY in the summer of 2011. Despite quickly realising that what passes for summer in London doesn’t quite match-up with her native Italy, she nevertheless agreed to stay with us for 6 months as our latest UK intern.
Having obtained a BA in Fine Arts from the Accademia di Belle Arti di Venezia, Alessia moved into Multimedia Production, spending some time as a Shooting and Editing Assistant at a film company. Having subsequently focused more on communications whilst working as a Creative Director at a PR agency, Alessia ultimately returned to full-time education in order to obtain an MA in Strategic Design from the Politecnico di Milano.
She joined STBY in order to learn more about how we use film here in order to create empathic and engaging materials in the form of design documentaries. She’s also a key member of the ‘2011 Coffee Revolution’, who show a flagrant disregard for British customs by refusing to drink the mandatory 10 cups of tea a day. Shocking.
