About

A dynamic media specialist

My name is Niccolò Mineo and I come naturally as a multiskilled media professional.

The joint practice of web design, copywriting and interactive programming offer so many more opportunities of communication and information solutions, that I have decided to build a career in front-end development on top of my academic education and professional practice in journalism, copywriting and content development.

Nothing beats the hammer and anvil: practice leads to proficiency.

What I can do for you

I sail many of the seas that make up the digital media. In fact, I:

  • Authored the front-end of dozens of websites, crafted tons of graphics, wrote online contents for a variety of clients and drove them to success
  • Contributed to online media strategies in public institutions and private companies
  • Tested UIs and rethought the information architecture of online content areas, advising about new approaches for a more effective streamlining of existing services
  • Coded scripts to quickly retrieve informations from thousands of lines of local data
  • Contributed to copywriting on publications and subedited texts
  • Shortlisted web communication professionals for a position in Social Media Management at a private company

I have also some journalism experience in few topics (music, technology, travel) and as an editorial staff manager (music).
