During his studies, he was skillfully trained by the Department of Commercial Design of Fu-Hsin Trade and Arts School, and was requested to satisfy the demands of overall images for Ling Tung University and the National Yunlin University of Science and Technology. These experiences contributed to his meticulous persistence for design and his multi-faceted approaches as he went for Italy to pursue a master‘s degree on commercial design in the Domus Academy. In 2007, he established Fontana Design. Fontana means fountain in Italian. Apart from the expectation that inspiration could flow like a fountain, he hopes to integrate design, sentiments, and environments, and tailor dream-come- true designs for the clients.
Silvio believes that design is a concept and attitude of life. Thoughts, style, and colors are ways to convey beauty, and designers should not be restricted to performing in a certain area. After adding the concept of commercial design, Silvio engaged in graphic design from the perspectives of space and shape, allowing designs of Fontana Design to be endowed with frameless excellence. His ideas also laid a foundation for his future works, including graphic design, CI, environmental indicators, and spatial design.
