Cesare Zuccaro
FS: 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?
CZ: I started my journey by designing covers for my band, then over time I went from making the artwork to the complete presentation of the related merchandise product. Thus was born my passion in making products.

FS: Can you tell us more about your company / design studio?
CZ: Gravithin was born in 2017 with the intent to create something new that reflects the contemporary tastes of the market, after about 2 years, I decided to change direction and create something that instead was seen as unique in its genre, so the Argo collection was born.

FS: What kinds of works do you like designing most?
CZ: I prefer to design products.

FS: What is your most favorite design, could you please tell more about it?

FS: From your point of view, what are the responsibilities of a designer for society and environment?
CZ: Try to create something that respects intellectual property.

FS: How do you think the "design field" is evolving? What is the future of design?
CZ: The future of design is increasingly aimed at the digital world, I believe that over time new tools will be created to simplify the design process, so as to leave more space for ideas.

CZ: I have never done exhibitions until now.

FS: Where does the design inspiration for your works come from? How do you feed your creativity? What are your sources of inspirations?

FS: 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?
CZ: I would describe it as unconventional, after my last work, I decided that the right path to take is that which gives those who observe my works the possibility of perceiving uniqueness.

CZ: Pencil, ruler, protractor, compass, square.

FS: From your perspective, what would you say are some positives and negatives of being a designer?
CZ: On the positive side, being a designer is a stimulating job that leads you to get to know new styles and techniques. On the negative side, I see nothing new except the typical difficulties that any type of work could give.
