Andrea Paulicelli of mamadesignlab | fontable

The first time I met Andrea he was doing an aerial with his skateboard on one of the first Italian half-pipes near Milan, we were young teenager then and we shared the same passion: skateboarding. More than 20 years later we found out that we share the same passion for design and crafts and so now we are collaborating on a project (will show you about soon).
Also Andrea, keeps skateboarding (and surfing and snowboarding with the same energy of a 14 years old) I don't any more...but I wasn't a poser! ;^)
