ABOUT

Nefula is the first Italian studio of Near Future Design.

In a time of exponential change, Nefula adopts the Near Future Design methodology to perform possible futures and start up a shared conversation about them.

Nefula works in different areas that include transmedia design, educational activities, research, and consultancy.
In each field, our aim is to support clients in facing a complex, ever changing present while working together to design desirable scenarios for the future.
Since 2015, Nefula collaborates with institutions, companies, non-profits, and communities.

Nefula follows a cross-disciplinary approach that combines the arts, design, humanities, and new media communication.
The tools adopted range from traditional practices of communication and product design, to innovative technologies such as the Social Networks Ecosystem Observation and Big Data analysis.
