Hi there! I'm Ivan Dal Cin, digital designer

Hello! I'm a digital designer that works on web and rich media projects. My approach to digital design is focused on engaging ideas and user experience, both visually and interactively. Usability is not everything: what I seek is a balance between the predictable functioning of a display and its gradual evolution into something unexpected. I'm interested in the aesthetics and ethics of online communication, to which I apply some conceptual tools borrowed from visual researches. The development of content, browsing metaphors and interaction design should lead to a more conscious and articulated vision of a given reality.

For ten years with Vitamino I have managed the web project of Palinsesti, a venue for contemporary art events. With a new layout produced every year, it has been a challenging experience of communicating art.

UX design

User experience seems to incorporate every aspects and steps in the making process of web sites, since anything could affect the feeling and usage. It may appear confusing or too generic, but it helps to focus on what really matters: the user. Anything from brand awareness to conversion is more or less directly connected with the live experience thru the pages. Layout, navigation, interactions and goals are finally activated by users so they have to be carefully designed with that endpoint in mind. My work in this area is to project and develop both a functional and a catching user interface, figuring out all possible criticalities and anticipating issues or alternatives.

Web development

I started to code web pages by hand on text editor at university, and never gave up. From static pages to corporate websites, I can provide the most usable tools to let the client concentrate on content strategy, with a fine tuning of performance and scalability under the hood. There’s plenty of opensource frameworks and CMS out there to work around, to hack and hook. Maybe Wordpress is far from being a perfect piece of software, but with custom implementations it could fit 90% of average companies needs.

Visual communication

The wide & wild area in which I operate comprises graphic design, advertising and visual communication at large. Web design process at some point requires a robust and consistent visual project, because it has to be read by human beings - not only by machines. Simmetry, sense of rhythm and counterpoints are essential elements for a successful and eye-catching layout. Readable texts, suitable color palettes but also unpredictable results: seeking to fulfill expectations leads to obviousness. Trying to avoid simple user appealing is the first step towards awareness. After all, everyone will be there selling things with a big smile on the face: just try out other emoticons (*_*)

Content Strategy
