UX Design Lead @ Amazon
Japan 5.0 (6 reviews) Active 4 months ago Usually responds in a day or two


Hi there! I'm Riccardo, an Italian Product Designer living in Tokyo since 2010.
With 12 years of relevant experience in UX Design, Interaction Design, and Design Thinking, I spent most of my career in Japan, designing for startups as well as big corporations. At the moment I work as UX lead in Amazon.
I founded the TGD community, a place where designers living in Tokyo can share their experiences.
I can help with portfolio reviews, career advice, product critique, and strategy, especially for those who plan to move to Tokyo and work as designers.
