NICOLA MONTEFUSCO

CONCEPT DESIGNER


research, design, solve.

Creative and curious I have always been trying to improve my reality and, in doing so, creating new ideas. This led me to the creative process and sketching as a free time hobby strongly encouraged by my parents.

Even through my high school years, characterized by the study of classical culture, history, philosophy and other humanistic disciplines, I never stopped sketching as a mean to express myself. It was during this period that my interest in games, movies and narrative universes started to link with my sketching passion and my cultural background.

Pushed by those passion and with the desire to improve the daily world I enrolled in Politecnico di Milano Interior Design Program where I deepened my interest for the design process, arts, technology and the oriental culture. In 2016 I graduated cum laude with a concept design for a dining experience entirely based on Joseph Campbell’s Hero’s Journey.

Not entirely satisfied by the Interior Design bachelor and wanting to further refine my concepting skill I joined the post-graduate program in Product Design for Innovation which focuses on the idea creating phase of the industrial design process. During these two years I had the opportunity to collaborate with the European Space Agency and other major companies on design concepts.

Those experience brought me back to my art passion enriched by a new desire to design to create breathtaking narrative universes that are not only entertaining but part of the cultural legacy we will leave behind. Since January I started working on a thesis project which tries to link what I learnt from the design word with my interest for the entertainment design field hoping to improve my skill enough to be able to work in the industry.

The rest of my free time has been focused on family and friendships, outdoor activities such as climbing, travelling around the world and to my second strongest passion: cooking.

All those passions, friendships and experiences shape what my designs and artworks will look like while still learning the beautiful art of concept and planning that is entertainment design.
