I’m explaining you how in this post.



Mancano solo due settimane alla Milano Design Week ed è ora di raccontarvi meglio di cosa mi occuperò-anzi, ci occuperemo- quest’anno. Stiamo lavorando ad un eBook che verrà pubblicato al termine della design week.

La pubblicazione sarà completamente indipendente e non sponsorizzata (vi raccontavo qui del lavorare come design blogger e dell’approccio differente che vorrei sperimentare quest’anno) . Per questo vi invito a condividere il progetto e a partecipare.

Come, ve lo spiego oggi in questo post.
