Roberto Fantauzzi (PR/USA)
Roberto Fantauzzi was born in Puerto Rico in 1970. As far as he can remember, he’s been dreaming up characters that make him laugh and hopefully make others happy. He graduated with a degree in Product Design from Parsons the New School for Design in 2010. That same year he started happyfunny as a way to produce a range of objects marrying functionality and whimsy. He has worked as a director of creative services in the music industry; a graphic designer; a mural artist; a product designer and as a faculty professor at Parsons. Aside from licensing his furniture and product designs, he is developing a series of toys and animations based on his characters.
He believes in minimalism and that animals are the most perfect creatures in the world.
