My name is Enzo de Villarrealand I’m a creator.
At the end of the day, I am my best product.
That’s why I work hard, to become my best self.
or go home.
1 – Who Am I?
I’m always alert and aware of even the smallest details around me. Situations, names, images… I pay close attention to my surroundings, trying to better understand the world around me.
I feel thrilled when learning new things, discovering my possibilities and testing how far I can push myself. Also, I’m a self-taught person, if I have nobody to ask, I don’t hesitate looking around for answers until I find the perfect solution.
As a result to my curiosity, I’ve explored different fields, theories and crafts. I try to always learn the best from each discipline, creating my own workflow where I can implement everything I’ve learnt along the way in a coherent and convenient way.
Thanks to this approach I get an interdisciplinar profile that helps me sort out a several different situations and adapt myself to shifting situations I might encounter.
I’m a creative person, but above all, I love to materialize my ideas, taking them one step further until they come into being.
Getting my hands dirty and work hard to see your projects shape up is one of the greatest satisfactions one can ever have.
I have a deep commitment with the work I do, putting all my effort and determination into getting the best results. I like to fully engage in the projects I start, and I don’t get frightened by the hard work needed to get the best results.
2 – How Did I Get Here?
Digital & Analog:
That point in which the best of each world meet, the union in between the real and ideal worlds, the tangible vs. the ethereal.
Almost without noticing, I’ve always been building bridges and crafting digital solutions in traditionally analog business: publishing houses, bookshops, photography studios…
And that is how, little by little, I’ve been specializing in working with hybrid models, focused on helping overcome the barriers the business confront everyday under the influence of new technologies.
As a creative person, I’ve always approached the problems in non conventional ways. Not as a defiant act, but as a natural part of my character.
One of the tasks I have always most enjoyed has been to improve the existent solutions: putting myself in the user’s shoes, learn their workflow and interactions with the products, has brought me the best results on every occasion. Getting to think as the user has shown me the needed answers to get products and tools that are not only easier to use, but an experience to remember.
Striving to be better:
I never assume anything, and I never settle for less. I thing that you have to always give your best, working with the same enthusiasm as a rookie, but applying the wisdom of someone who’s been doing his job for a while.
I always take something from all the projects I’ve embarked on: something it is techincal stuff, others is life wisdom. I’ve even gained lifelong friends that have been with me since then. For sure, it has always been something that has made me grow as a person.
You dream up places to go, but rarely end up there. However, those thoughts, the decisions made to accomplish your goals, forge the person you get to be.
Thus life teaches us that it’s not about the destination,
it’s about the journey.
3 – What I have to offer
Well, there’s a lot
Now I’m a modest man
But look at all I got
And you know
full of love
