Bluinfaccia

Hi, I'm Daniele Prati.

I'm a freelance multidisciplinary creative and here at "Bluinfaccia" I keep track of skills improvements and acquisition and development of knowledge. This extended online CV with skills résumé and software proficiency is divided into three main areas of expertise: design, web and content.

The name of this site, that in italian means "blue in the face", comes from an old joke about this movie scene.
