Designwork is a joint project, born in Udine in 2002, based on a concept developed by Roberto Barazzuol and Artemio Croatto, who work with a team of seven collaborators. Roberto Barazzuol began his career in the United States where he founded a studio and worked on the conceptualization and realization of the Gap's brand image. Later he worked in furniture and industrial design. When he returned to Italy in 1993 he created Barazzuol Design. His work has won him major awards. In 1983, Artemio Croatto collaborated with Studio Montanari. In 1988 he was art director of brands such as Kartell, Hewlett Packard Italia, Moroso, Ron Ara Design London, Art'Φ. He is also a consultant on teaching, design and visual communication programmes. Design is a work. Work is a design. A working concept that combines conceptualization and realization, ethics and aesthetics. Designwork's watchword is: a design to draw, a work to design.
