Gaetano Ling is a multidisciplinary product designer who has somehow managed to make a career out of curiosity and serious tinkering. With formal experience in design for manufacture and mechanical engineering, he also obtained a double MA & MSc degree in Innovation Design Engineering from the Royal College of Art and Imperial College in 2011. Since then, he's applied a range of end-to-end inventing skills, from rapid digital/physical prototyping to dfm, towards several products you might have seen out in the world. He is currently humanizing technology as a product designer at IDEO in Palo Alto, California.
