Founder & CEO | DesignWanted Srl

After having worked in multinational companies such as Procter&Gamble and Michael Page International, Patrick Abbattista first entered the design industry in 2009 as a marketing professional, managing the international business development of Design42Day as a co-founder, which rapidly evolved from a design blog to an influential source of inspiration for talented minds.

In 2015, he founded DesignWanted as the natural continuation of his entrepreneurial path, with the clear idea in mind of helping design enthusiasts to change this world. Much more than a digital publication and a flourishing Instagram page, DesignWanted brings together professionalscreatives and entrepreneurs from diverse range of background to share knowledgetools and opportunities.

Patrick has also been a lecturer at international events including Milan Design Week (Italy), Moscow Design Week (Russia), New Designers (UK), India Design Forum (India), Design Lighting Tokyo (Japan), World Green Design Forum (China), Barcelona Design Week (Spain).

Along with it, he has given courses about Design Management at the prestigious Accademia Costume & Moda (Rome, Italy, ranked #11 worldwide by BoF) and at Accademia del Lusso (Milan, Italy).
