Paolo Marinig

Born in Cividale del Friuli (UD) in 1962. On finishing his studies in 1986, he entered the world of communications and remained there until 1994. But the boundary between communications and design is very thin. All the experience and creativity gained previously has now been transferred to this new world. He works for leading companies, concentrating not just on form but also language. He has worked with the best-known designer labels in Italian fashion in the creation of important international projects.
Selected for the ADI DESIGN INDEX 2010.
