Ferrari, who currently works for HP’s large format imaging and digital publishing, imaging and printing group, has the full support of the company.
He plans to spend the next 12 months between Sydney and Bolivia’s second largest city, Cochabamba, where he has already gained the support of architects, designers and business consultants to work with him on the initial concepts.
“There is so much to do and we will be looking for support, both in kind and financial, to make this project a reality,” says
“I’ve enjoyed being able to support our up and coming designers through the HP programmes. However, this is for the children of Bolivia who are very poor and underprivileged.
“More than 60 per cent of the country lives in poverty. I want to be able to use the knowledge I’ve gained working in the corporate world, and in setting up the Design Graphics Warehouse, to build an orphanage that will really benefit those who need it the most; the children of my country.”
His replacement will be announced shortly with Ferrari resuming his position in November 2006.
