i’m a designer. i am not a graphic designer, or a product designer, or a data visualiser. design is not a skill, it is a way of thinking.

Where do you see yourself in 20 years?

applying design thinking in every aspect of my life

What is a good design for you?

for me, design started with photography. more specifically, portraiture on monochrome film. strip away the colour from a photograph, and what you are left with is the black & white form — the essence of the feeling you wanted to capture in the first place. 

What was the most challenging experience during your studies?

considering the times we live in, the sterile nature of online collaborations

Who or what inspires you?

communication is not the key, simplicity is. it is the key to the lock(lack?) of communication which opens the door to new possibilities.

Say hi!
