Hi there! My name is Ferran and I love to have fun making people have fun.

Do you wanna know more about me?

Yes!

No.

I believe in game thinking as a highly powerful tool in order to design stuff that has a true impact on people. Fun really makes the difference! I'm also passionate about finding new ways in which people can interact both with each other, with objects and with space. I'm convinced that tech should be the one striving to understand humans, and not vice versa.

I’m an interaction designer and researcher from Barcelona. I'm passionate about the link between play and human interactions.
