LattinaDesign and Thinkalize brand. LattinaDesign is an innovative start-up founded in 2014. In the same year, with the Thinkalize project, we enter Speed MI Up, the Italian accelerator of the most innovative companies, owned by University Bocconi. The Thinkalize brand is registered in the European Union. We have been also recognized among the sixty best start-ups, during the Expo 2015 Exhibition Fair. At this point, we launch the beta version of the platform! Following further market research and new partnerships, the current Thinkalize is launched in August 2017 and receives, in February 2018, the Speed MI Up Startupper Certificate.
We’re a friendly bunch.
One team, many talents. With a culture of collaboration, a hive of talent, and enthusiasm for doing, the Thinkalize team is active in the creative community, endlessly interested in what’s next, and generally pleasant to be around. So don’t be shy, say hi.
Nicoletta Founder & CEO
“I am creative, positive, resourceful and full of life. I always have a smile on my face and sometimes I like to live and think outside the box … let’s just call it creative chaos! A little long-winded, but only sometimes”: Maybe this is one of those days!
For Nicoletta, time spent on Thinkalize is a great opportunity to live an extraordinary life. What does she love? Her favourite object is her contact lens. Transparent and soft, they help her to focus and look deeper into the broader things in life.
About Thinkalize? She loves the passion of the people who work there. Thinkalize is her smile.
In Thinkalize, she sees a new way of thinking, planning and producing: It's the future! Thinkalize means participating and sharing with people. At the same time, it is an explosion of energy and a stress release: “Thinkalize can take many forms, but will never lose its originality”.
Stefania Marketing Director
Curious, persevering and methodical. She likes surprises but only when they are expected. She is a lover of philosophy, yoga and painting. A person with a strong and humble character at the same time. She is never separated from her trusted companion… sunglasses, worn upon her head, black and large, modern or “maybe vintage”.
Stefania explores and inverts meanings. In the design process, she looks into the world with wide-open eyes, studying and making connections through a scientific and rational approach. About Thinkalize? It is a robot of futuristic-intelligence! Above all, Thinkalize is similar to her relentless search for innovation.
Thinkalize for her is “Wow!... Even if Wow is not an adjective”. Should we forgive her, since we asked her to use an adjective? “Thinkalize is a friendly and creative community. It represents change and progress”.
Filippo Legal Manager
Filippo is attractive, intuitive, rational and stubborn… “Anyway, I swear that I am a nice man!”.
He is dedicated to politics and journalism. His favourite object is the PC. In his own words, he describes it as: “184 cm tall, slender, with brown hair and brown eyes (Don't know...)”.
About Thinkalize? He recognizes its ability to constantly keep up and welcome diversity, just as he does in his work. “Thinkalize develops approaches for the future, starting from the sharing of ideas”.
“Thinkalize is innovative, young and supportive, with pure enthusiasm”. He imagines it as a red PC (“who knows: maybe with blue eyes?!”) and a generator of new beginnings.
Fabio General Manager
Fabio manages everything! Resolute and determined: He manages his life throughout goals “even if I could be too much of a schematic person, at times”.
However, in his spare time, he stops thinking about work and likes to relax and enjoy his hobbies (do we really believe him about that?). The most used object belonging to him is the mobile phone, “unfortunately, it’s a complicated relationship!”.
His firmness and vision are always focused forward. For him, Thinkalize creates and realizes new opportunities: “It is the heart that beats, a fiery red one!”.
Thinkalize for Fabio represents a solid foundation to operate in the future: “It’s my energy”.
Thanks to Thinkalize, he has been involved in a diverse range of innovative business projects and worldwide collaborations.
Francesca likes clouds and, oddly enough, even prototypes. Reflective and patient, immersed and dreamy. She adores eating and drinking, and organising trips to eat and drink. She lives inside imaginary stories, sometimes confusing them with reality (Oops!).
Her old and heavy PC is the object for which she has most respect for: when it gets tired, she stops all her activities with it!
However, the object to which she feels more attached to, is her shoulder bag: Inside it, she places parts of her life. Thinkalize represents a magic for her: It turns creative ideas into incredible things! “Thinkalize is brave”, like a glowing, bold sunflower. She identifies herself with Thinkalize through the attitude of creating human and cultural relationships. Thinkalize is her challenge.
Suki Creative Director
Suki describes himself as wild and quirky, imaginative and humorous: A daring individual! He can regularly be seen armed with a digital camera riding a Hero Honda scooter, in the streets of India or walking the suburbs of London, feeding his visual love for street art. Other passions include drawing and painting. He can be really expressive with a drawing pen. He loves the sound of pen upon paper: “It’s like skiing on paper”. The thing he loves most is his pair of Converse boots: He talks, laughs and even sleeps in them (“on the train, that is!”).
For Suki, design thinking is essential for any creative and productive process, however, there should always be a reason for what you do. “Designing for the sake of looking good is plastic and fake. Put your heart and soul into everything: think, question, reason and create”. Thinkalize for him is a trusted friend, one that always backs you up. Thanks to Thinkalize, Suki has met new professionals from different backgrounds and cultures, giving him a fresh way of looking at the world of design and collaboration.
Ele Management Assistant
Eleonora is a storyteller and likes to write novels and spend her time in the company of her animals: solar, shy and unselfish, Eleonora will always be there for you. She cares for herself very much and has a great sense of direction, which is why she is particularly fond of her nose.
Paper and pen are her darling things: “The paper is white, smooth and fragrant, and the pen releases dreams. They inspire serenity”.
To her, Thinkalize is witty and sociable, yet if it was her friend it would be one of those she’d never call “because Thinkalize is all about ideas and so I cannot have a Coke with it!” she confesses. Irony and share of inventiveness are the aspects that she likes most about Thinkalize. Thinkalize is the same as Eleonora: Both are brilliant, playful and amusing.
Roger Projects Director
Roger would never give up his book collection: “They are the expression of human ability to communicate in a long-lasting way”.
In addition to reading, his passions lie in art, painting, photography and first of all his family. His most used object is the PC (he has always been a highly technological person).
Roger strongly believes in the design thinking process, as it is the foundation of the whole creative methods. His Thinkalize is “young and dynamic, but also ethical and fair. It’s like a reliable person”.
If Thinkalize were an object, to Roger, it would be a sheet of paper, filled with drawings, notes and ideas. His Thinkalize is a space of sharing and a place where to put into action his creative and professional approach. Thinkalize pushes him, again and again, to question new ideas and innovative models.
Alberto Web Developer
Open-minded, optimist, minimalist, Alberto is a proactive person. Music is his passion: a producer, a composer, a lover of gigs and live music. He interviews artists and also likes to sing while working in Thinkalize! He loves his Bluetooth speaker so much that he has installed an alarm on it...just in case!
To Alberto, Thinkalize is a magic box: A hub for creative minds where everything becomes possible and where different people can be in contact with each other for creating something together. He considers Thinkalize as if it was a creative cheerful friend, full of ideas with whom he can share everything but never his Bluetooth speaker.
Germano Financial Director
Obstinate and kind, his best feature is his logical ability. The most used object he owns is “the fork!”.
To Germano, Thinkalize is about being able to improve our lives, on a functional and aesthetic level. Thinkalize is “a great idea to believe in”, and Germano imagines it as “an ergonomic red armchair, one of those that welcome and adapt to people and create functional experiences”.
In Thinkalize, he particularly admires the dialogue and sharing between different mindsets, backgrounds and cultures. He mainly observes its attitude towards creativity. In Thinkalize, besides being a driven leader, Germano is a curious observer: “I always see smiling smileys everywhere”.
A deep thinker, Joshua swims with the flow. He is a curious little creature, fast and tenacious, clever and courageous. Don't let his small size fool you! In his spare time, he likes to learn and study. He knows 10 languages including Bubble, Oceana, English and Japanese. He's very International, you know! “Bblobbblobbbloblo!”. (That means “nice to meet you” in the fish talk).
You can normally see him philosophising by the sea, with a glass of water in one fin and reading a book by Freud in another. Joshua adapts well to the great outdoors, never losing sight of the established goal of his human colleagues.
His greatest passion is bubbles: they always inspire him with new ideas. This is why he loves to dive into the unexplored depths and go where no fish has boldly gone before. Thinkalize is his ocean of discovery.
Leonardo da Vinci Scientist
"I have been impressed with the urgency of doing. Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Being willing is not enough; we must do." (Leonardo da Vinci, 1452-1519).
For Thinkalize, Leonardo da Vinci has always been a source of inspiration. His genius revealed a spirit of scientific inquiry and a mechanical inventiveness that were centuries ahead of their time.
We respect his infinite curiosity, feverish imagination and sublime artistic ability. We respect a lifetime spent studying art, science, optics, and every other possible field that he could apply his curiosity to. We respect his influence upon history; after so many centuries of history, one thing's for sure: he was a one of a kind.
Thanks for keeping us inspired, Leonardo da Vinci.
