Giovanni Dipilato is a London based creative Product Designer currently enrolled in the Product Design MA programme at the Royal College of Art.
Giovanni’s design is the direct translation of a deep human-centered approach based on Design Thinking’s ethos. His products are characterised by an inclusive usage as he strongly believes in the “Design for All” future reality of the world.
