We can’t look into the future without seeing ourselves. We all enter a path into the unknown and along the way we experience things and meet others. The future of work will be driven by social trends and advancements in tech, but let’s hope not to the detriment of the environment. Let’s not forget to dream!

I built this 3D scene with a fresh spin on the Adecco Group logo, rendering my vision of a green future and freedom of workplace.
“The creation-19” is a piece that marks the beginning of a new post-pandemic reality, where digital automation will be given life and integrate into our lives and influence the way we work.

Lots of things will change in the future; we cannot have total control on the external factors… So a team must focus and create their own happiness and make working together a happy experience. Whatever will happen in the future, work experience will still be defined by the people you are working with, and the way you interact with them.
One of the biggest things to explode during this pandemic has been the rise of the “Shared Economy”. It has aligned itself to be the future of how we purchase things but also it has been beneficial as an example of the future at work. My work represents three main attributes of this multi-dollar concept, from the companies who participate to what the future holds.

Looking past the near future, what does work look like?
A fearful symmetry of consumable cogs feeding the machine, or a hyper-connected exchange of thoughts and ideas to brighten the path ahead. Is it a vertigo of expendable talent and tightening profit margins, or a synchronous dance of collaborative progress and growth?
These last two years have accelerated our digital interaction, thus paving the way to a whole new World. This piece explores a colourful intake into a future where innovation is a must.

This represents the connection between the digital and natural world, and how humans can link both worlds and balance them.

Everyone is covered up; through the last two years, we have seen how humanity adapts to the digital world, but at the same time, I have seen how we have lost a small amount of what makes us human. This artwork conveys our diversity, multiculturalism and the passage through time reshaped uniquely, as we face the future at work.

We are entering a new reality where the home office will become the social backbone within a company. My piece seeks to raise awareness of how we need interaction as social beings to collaborate and create. While the concept of working from home has brought positive changes, the reality of self isolation hubs could become the norm in a not-too-distant future. So, let’s adapt our new way of working with consciousness.

With the pandemic, we have experienced advantages and disadvantages to working from home. The future caught up with us, and companies are now uniquely positioned to create the right ecosystem to bring people back together in a blink. This artwork expresses having a healthier environment for the labour system’s essential pillar: the workers.
Kinetic type to evoke how things (in the future of work) are changing quickly and not always as predicted and so cannot be pinned down as crisp and exact.
As millions of people around the world were stuck at home during the pandemic, this situation brought an amazing opportunity - the luckier ones could just grab a laptop and go anywhere. Suddenly people who thought they could never leave their offices can now work from their dream destinations as true digital nomads.

The pandemic accelerated the way society works and communicates, and through that change, we have witnessed a number of mental health issues. My work brings to light the pitfalls of an unbalanced lifestyle and how it can cut you in half.
