Hi! I'm Danilo Pasquariello, a designer with coding knowledge who specialises in WebXR.
I like to build prototypes and cross-platform virtual reality experiences that run in the browser.
Some of my WebXR projects won awards in hackathons and competitions back in March 2019 and April 2018.
After completing the Unity Junior Programmer Pathway in 2022, I'm exploring generative AIs and Unreal Engine 5.
"Danilo is a very talented and experienced designer. During our time working together I saw first hand how passionate he is about XR UI design and user experience. He approaches projects methodically with clear communication and regular feedback, designs and performs well structured UX research - including activities such as user testing - and uses empirical data to support his designs & recommendations. Danilo also has the coding skills necessary to build his own prototypes using modern WebXR based frameworks, which enables him not only to own a design project at the higher UX / UI design level, but also to quickly iterate on concepts in functional prototypes - which is especially important for immersive experience design. This combination of skills makes him a key part of any team building immersive products! I very much enjoyed our time working together and would enjoy doing so again!"
"We had to set a high bar when recruiting for the position Danilo ultimately filled: not only did we need someone who would understand the complexities of XR, it had to be someone who would understand our business requirements and then self-organise to contribute to them. Danilo met all of these expectations and then some. His domain knowledge is impressive and combined with an ability to create immersive prototypes meant that Danilo is able to support high fidelity UX tests without disrupting the engineering teams. On that point, the quality of the assets he did produce were often complemented by professional software engineers. Running usability testing sessions with Danilo was a pleasure: he conducts himself professionally and works hard to ensure that the output is reliable and valuable. Danilo is a fantastic colleague and I'd be delighted to work with him again given the opportunity."
"I had the pleasure of working with Danilo while he was on the team building framevr.io Danilo is professional, personable, skilled, and passionate. It is hard to put a label on Danilo that encompasses the breadth of what he can do. He is truly a cross-disciplinary designer, coder, and educator. He brings a meticulous, cautious eye to his work and is unafraid to learn new things. He is an unwavering advocate for the end-user of products and aims always to make what he works on accessible, easy to use, and aesthetically pleasing - not just functional. Beyond those things, Danilo is also a great communicator and teammate. It was really a pleasure to have him with us and he made lasting contributions to the FRAME product and team."
"Danilo has an exceptional knowledge of WebVR and in particular A-Frame. He hosted a fantastic workshop for us, where the students had no prior knowledge of either, and by the end, each student (each with different abilities) had produced a WebVR scene that even included an animation, within a very short time. Our workshop was exceptionally challenging, as it had to be delivered remotely via Skype, but Danilo was able to deliver a step-by-step approach meaning nobody was left behind. Danilo is fantastic at understanding exact requirements, through lots of preparation and communication. He is a true expert on WebVR and A-Frame. In fact, he was recommended to me and I was pleased I was! The quality of his work is exceptional and I would not turn to anyone else when I need to do another WebVR project - either commercially, or as someone who can deliver training in the subject. Danilo is a pleasure to work with, and very patient! I look forward to working with him again!"
"Danilo is really enthusiastic and responsive. We've been collaborating on a couple WebXR related projects and he has consistently showed initiative in trying to get things done. This was specially nice to see when he went ahead and kept on solving different technical challenges, coming from a designer background. He was very quick to put together prototypes and POCs for these WebXR projects using A-Frame, and finding material and examples to convey his ideas. He iterated over and over improving the UI and UX of those projects, and I'm really happy with the final result! Looking forward to working more with him."
"I can only say good things about Danilo. Even now, I am still inspired by his passion for WebVR and his knowledge about A-Frame. During our collaboration, he was very amiable and considerate with our constraints and was patient with the obstacles that we encountered. Despite these administrative obstacles, he continued delivering beyond our expectations. He has always been jovial in our Zoom meetings and was able to catch all comments and suggestions quickly. I will surely continue working with him in future projects! "
