Carmen Angelillo is the co-founder and creative director of Barcelona's Niceshit Studio. Originally from Italy, she cut her teeth at a stop motion studio and then London's Animade before forming Niceshit Studio with Guido Lambertini and Rodier Kidmann.

I recently met her in Barcelona, where she showed me round Niceshit's studio space and explained her passion for animation. Here, as part of our Day in the life series, we chat about why fashion design wasn't for her, how living abroad can influence creative work and why design festivals need to do better.
