This is me


My name is Nicoló Volpato

I am CEO and Experience Designer at Tangible, a digital design company that I founded in 2004 (the old name used to be GNV&Partners), when I was 21 years old and still in college.

We're a close-knit team of thinkers, designers and frontend developers, helping companies deliver great digital experiences that delight their customers and have a business impact. I spend half of my time designing digital products and services for our clients and the other half designing how our company works.

In these years I had the chance to work for Matt Mullenweg (WordPress), Om Malik (Gigaom), the NBA Utah Jazz, AOL, the TEDxAthens, Regione Emilia Romagna, G+J/Mondadori, Focus Junior, Harmony - Harlequin Mondadori, Spreaker, Moneyfarm, Blomming, Shicon, Dondup, Primissima, il MUSE di Trento, iConsulting, L'Unione Sarda, iFaber - Unicredit, Coop Alleanza 3.0, Fazland and Monnalisa.

I presented at two conferences in Italy in 2011 and 2012, and went to over 30 conferences all over Europe.

In 2013, together with some colleagues and friends, I launched Kerning Conference, the first conference in Italy on typography, and organized it again in 2014. After two editions I called it a wrap and left the conference to a dedicated team.

In 2014 I attended the Design Leadership course at Cooper, in San Francisco.

In early 2015 I brought Jeff Gothelf's Lean UX workshop to Italy for the first time.
And I did it again in May 2016 with Jeff's Lean UX in the Enterprise workshop.

In 2017 I organized the first official Design Sprint workshop in Italy with Jake Knapp of Google Ventures.

You can follow me on Twitter, Linkedin, Slideshare, Dribbble, or see pictures of my travels on Flickr.
I sometimes write on my company blog and on Medium.
