Hi, I'm Matteo Pitassi

Senior product designer

About

I'm an Italian living in Stockholm and consulting as a product designer for tech companies across Europe and the USA.

Prior to joining Samsen as partner, I spent 8 years working in Venice as freelancer and in house designer for numerous clients, such as La Biennale di Venezia and Flos.
Outside my professional practice, I enjoy tinkering with art projects, like painting 120x180cm frames or setting up small exhibits.

Recommendations

"I've been so lucky to manage Matteo during his time at Spotify. He was comfortable leading through ambiguity to build a new mobile system, always set the bar high for design quality, and was a strong partner for engineering and product."
