WHY I CREATED A NEW WEBSITE
After many years I have finally decided to create a new website.
The first version came out around 2013 followed by a restyling in 2015 through a simple wordpress theme.
I was pretty satisfied, so the website remained unchanged for a long time. Later I started to analize the statistics concerning the behavior of the users on my web pages and I realized that the mobile traffic was almost null. At first I thought that my audience probably browsers designers' sites by desktop computers and not by phone.
I never surf on marioalessiani.com, except to update it. So when a year ago I was with an interior designer who was consulting it right on his smatphone I realized that the user experience sucked.
In that moment I decided it was time to put it away, but I wanted a new design with no usage of themes, following my rules.
First I stopped being behind the scenes. The studio bears my name and from now on I would like to make it clear to those who surf that they are browsing on the website of a designer and not of a design agency, bigger and more plural than my reality.
The design for navigation is obviously cut to the bone (who knows me knows why), with a classic projects section (in which I deleted what no longer represents me), a sincere manifesto (which I will further integrate later in the future), a blog where I tell a little about what I do (like today), a press section (on the advice of a friend of mine) and a contact form.
If you are reading via desktop I suggest you to try mobile. Let me know what you think by sending me an email, we accept advice and compliments.
Next week I will upload one of my last summer projects, a research on the relationship between craftsmanship and tech.
GRAZIE ! THANK YOU ! MERCY !
It has been a while since "Tra il Sole e la Luna" in Montone took place, I had few days of vacation and now I am back to my desk writing to you.
This is an email to say thank you for coming by, curious about that design exhibit in that unusual place.
I was very impressed in seeing your wonder, but I am super grateful for all your compliments for a job that I do everyday with a lot of dedition.
Explaining design is not that easy, talking with people around me I figured out that it seems to be a creative expedient to make "nice things".
But there is more.
There are processes, studies, failtures and a lot of people that make these ideas come to life.
Very special thanks to Natascia Innamorati, Marco Di Marcantonio and all Proloco Montone staff that wanted to showcase such a strange job.
