This is me


My name is Nicoló Volpato

I am CEO and Experience Designer at GNV&Partners, a digital design company that I founded in 2004, 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 two 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.

You can follow me on Twitter, Linkedin, Slideshare, Dribbble.
I sometimes write on my company blog and on Medium.
