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 design stuff to help people interact playfully with one another. Fun really makes the difference! I'm passionate about the role future technologies will play in our lives. I am convinced that such tech cannot be designed in the lab, and that's why I embrace a participatory approach to research. I work towards a future in which tech makes our lives easier, yes!, but also happier and more social.

I’m an interaction designer and researcher from Catalonia.
I do work at the intersection of play, design, and technology.
