Blend is a fresh, fast growing firm with a true understanding of international taste, cultural trends, economical and communicative relations. Its members, Francesco Piattelli Palmarini, Federico Manneschi, and Fabio Frangipani have lived, breathed, worked and walked on European, Asian, Noth and South American grounds.
How did Blend start?
Blend started from the desire to create a playground on which to explore our interests, research new cultural/trend driven communication needs and discover new ways of combining arts, advertising and communication.
What's in store for Blend?
Our main goal at the moment is being able to open a project management and development office in NY. The startup period has been (and still is!), very fast paced and especially focused on the creation of a solid production team, based in Blend’s Tuscan headquarters of Arezzo.
What makes blend so different and unique?
The company’s creative infrastructure can work and develop projects from all over the world.
We are constantly looking for creative entrepreneurs willing to join us and contribute to our research of creative, socio-cultural aware communication and advertising strategies. If worth it, we are always open to partner up for new ideas in need of production, development or project management skills.
Our goal is to have creative resources scattered globally, in order to give each project the flexibility, warmth and social awareness of the local perspective.
Dream project for Blend?
Blend is a project in it self, a project that we lovingly nurture, but that we don’t want to define.
Our job is scouting through all of the undefined and contingent possibilities that once put together, compose an idea, business or project.
We are constantly looking for that “blendingpoint” between content and form, brand and brand perception, human and digital, online and offline, motion and graphics…
I guess our dream is just being there…between the pulp and the skin…
