francesco laddomada
gameplay crafter & inventor

I believe that play is a primary need of human nature, but many forget this when they grow up.
My mission is to wake up the child sleeping inside each of us.
I do this by exploring, understanding and inventing unique forms of play.


My design philosophy consists of creating minimalist and experimental products with a huge love for details in their every aspect (design, art, technology).
