Hi! 👋 I'm Fabrizio Rinaldi. I design amazing apps at Bending Spoons, I'm building Boxy Suite and I've made a short film

iOS App
I designed

30 Day Fitness

One of the most popular fitness apps on the App Store, 30 Day Fitness represented one the most challenging projects for me. As a solo UI designer working on this app, I took the original interface to the next level by redesigning it from the ground up and rethinking the whole user experience with my team at Bending Spoons. The app has been subsequently featured by Apple in more than a hundred countries.

Short Film 2015
I produced, wrote and directed

Encounter

Encounter is a crowdfunded sci-fi short film I've written and directed. It's my debut short film and it's been distributed in international film festivals like VIFF. It's been shot on a RED Epic in the South of Italy. If you want to see it just ask.

Mac app 2015 - NOW
I co-founded and design

Boxy

Boxy is the best Inbox by Gmail client, available on the Mac App Store. I co-created it with Francesco Di Lorenzo, the developer, and I curated from the start the product design, marketing and social media presence. I also created the official website and I give customer support. The app has been downloaded more than 30k times.

Il Prof. di Filosofia by Gaetano Narducci

Short Film 2016
I edited

Terra Arcobaleno by Roberto Moretto

Short documentary directed by Roberto Moretto (also executive producer of my short film Encounter), on the "Pride" movement that took place in Foggia, our town. There was a huge amount of footage, the editing process was definitely exciting and fun.

Umbra by Carlo Fenizi

Umbra is a short film directed by Carlo Fenizi, written with Maria Antonietta Di Pietro. It's set in “Foresta Umbra”, a beautiful forest in Gargano land. "Umbra" means shadowy and for a reason: shooting in the dark forest proved to be challenging indeed.

Feature-lenght documentary on the Singers of Carpino, an old tradition of Christian music, written and directed by my father Giovanni Rinaldi.

I was the Visual FX Supervisor for this Italian noir feature film, directed by Alessandro Piva. I worked closely with the post-production team, and my work ranged from adding blood spatters to removing unwanted shadows and reflections.
