Thanks B-Reel! …Now it’s Microsoft time!

Riccardo Giraldi Microsoft Business Card

In November 2013 I moved to Seattle to join Microsoft!
After three fantastic years as Creative Director at B-Reel, first in London and then in New York, it was time to say goodbye to my friends and start a new  adventure.

Today I’m Central Creative Director of an exciting Microsoft’s incubation team working on a new product.

I joined B-Reel in London in 2010. We had a very strong team capable of doing some amazing work. Together we made B-Reel the most awarded production company in the world. We designed many experiences and crazy experiments, physical installations, from incredible museum installations to brain controlled gamesHRTF and projection mapping… I moved to New York in 2012 to start a new department in B-Reel called Products. There we incubated Escape Flight and created a new process for our ambitious R&D .

Thanks to B-Reel and all the great folks there, it’s been an honor to be part of B-Reel’s family  <3

FWA Interview

May 1st, 2013

Riccardo Giraldi FWA Interview

When I was student in high school I used to do websites on a side to make some money and keep on learning.
I was studying electronics but my passion was programming and design – also the title Webmaster was too cool at the time to be ignored…
Anyhow, those days I used to design and program in Flash. I was looking at thefwa.com as a magic place full of wonders.

The dream was to work for one of those companies that were producing those amazing works and maybe one day win an FWA too.

Few years have passed now. Since 3 I’m part of B-Reel, which today is by far the most awarded company on the FWA.
If I look back, I see how much hard work and passion it took me to get here. I’ve been extremely lucky to meet the right people and be in the right place at the right time. I had the honor to work at some of those companies that produce amazing stuff such as UNIT9, Helpful Strangers, Specialmoves and B-Reel.
Working in those fantastic teams I met great talents and won many of those FWA Awards.
Today I’m particularly proud because Rob Ford, founder of FWA, interviewed me for the site:

Now my big face is there too. Together with those of people that back in the years I considered as extremely inspiring personalities and are now good friends.
Little things that make me happy.

In November 2012 I’ve been invited as speaker at KIKK Festival - a brilliant conference with some of the best talents around.
Organized in a beautiful town in Belgium called Namur, it has been a fantastic experience in an extremely well organized and social context – many of the people I met there are good friends now.

Now the video of my talk is available online on Youtube and has been published on The FWA Web TV.
It’s quite a long video : )
