Who am I?

Hi! If you are here you are asking yourself who am I and what I do for living!

Short version: my name is Marco Olivetti, born and raised in Rome (Italy) and I am a Web Designer, even if in the last five years I have worked mainly as a UX Designer, in other words developing usable web site thinking about the users.

This is my personal website, where I write articles about the world of Web Design and the work as Webdesigner, Information Architecture and User Experience, and sometimes even about Graphic Design.

On my blog I don’t write 100 post at day, but I prefer 1 or 2 per week, because this way I can mantain a superior quality of the articles, quality that will surely decrease if I write more often.

Furthermore, this is my website so I’m the only writer, I do what I can!

What I do for work?

A young me teaching at the University of Padova at a conference.

My first contact with the web was in the 2005, I still remember website built with tables, ie6, and the growing awareness about the accessibility, and some other italian anomalies.

Thanks to an unexpeted encounter with one of the biggest italian expert, I began to study UX and Information Architecture, thanks also to books like the Krug one and the Polar Bear.

In late 2008, I’ve began to work with a Siena based web agency, and thanks to them I developed a lot of experience in the field.
After some societary change, I began to work with a web agency named YFC S.r.l., and even if this firm still no longer exist, I continue to work together to the same people.
