Nice to meet you Raph D’Amico
Where are you from?
I was born in France but moved around when I was a kid - nine places before I was nine - Boston, Milan and then the rest of my life in London before ending up at ID.
How did you end up at ID? Where were you before?
I was working in private equity and running music events.
Tell us quickly about a project that you’re working on now that you’re really excited about.
Redesigning the humble grill for Marty’s intro to product design class. Hoping to make something with the simplicity of a Foreman and the taste of a Weber. Plenty of late nights in Rhino to come…
Oh, and I’m very excited about co-chairing the DRC.
What do you do in your spare time?
I love rock climbing to bits - the guy to my left in the picture is my hero, Chris Sharma. I also beatbox.
What would you do with 20 million dollars?
Rock climb and snowboard for as long as possible… and then probably go back to design school!
What super-power would you most like to have, and why?
The ability to cook.
What are the websites you could not live without?
NYTimes.com, the Google empire
Is there anything you would like to say to ID?
Happy to be here!
