Sheldon.studio

Sheldon.studio is the first studio that focuses on designing informative experiences: projects that tend to decrease the distance between reality and perception, highly immersive experiences capable of informing an audience on complex and multifaceted topics. A group of professionals and academics funds the newborn studio to bridge the gap between industry and university, applying the research carried out by Matteo Moretti (DJA 2015 winner) during the years of work at the Free University of Bolzano on data journalism, giving particular importance to the world of public institutions, social and third-sector entrepreneurship. Our background allows us to design regardless of a specific medium: audience, content, and context are the parameters on which we go reason collaboratively with all stakeholders to produce memorable experiences.

Sheldon’s team members involved in the project:

Maurizio Lepore: Project coordinator
Matteo Moretti: Creative director + designer
