Patrick Kampff earned his Bachelor’s in Industrial Design at Pontifícia Universidade Católica in Rio de Janeiro. Soon, his entrepreneurial spirit led him to Milan after he won a scholarship competition to study at the Italian think tank Domus Academy.
Upon finishing his Master in Business Design, Patrick worked at Nike Italy in a role that drew on his creativity and business savvy.
After returning to his home country of Brazil, Patrick headed the Product Innovation team of Havaianas sandals for seven years, winning several design awards that helped establish the brand globally.
Patrick continued to nurture his curiosity by completing a MBA in Innovation Management in Sao Paulo. Shortly after that, he switched industries to work for Nestlé, where he is currently a senior brand design manager. His international experience and multidisciplinary background enable him to bridge the gap between the worlds of design and business.
“Fortunately in my career, I crossed paths with Domus Academy. There, I learned how to think critically, to solve problems in the real world. I was challenged by bright minds coming from many countries, and that exchange enabled me to raise my personal bar. The Master in Business Design program gave me a solid foundation upon which I continue to build in my career.”
