I am a 26 year old designer with a passion for storytelling. I realised after enrolling the architecture faculty that what drives me in architecture is the story behind it and that is why I became more interested in art direction in cinema. It feels kind of like surrealist architecture where you are free to design as liberally as you like to serve a narrative.
1. How do you define your work?
Every project is an opportunity for me to tell a story, I try to base my work on a narrative and every design decision made is to serve to the narrative as much as possible. I am still learning.
2. Where/ how/ who do you get inspiration from?
From fairy-tales and comic books because they all serve to a narrative. One of my projects done in university called Anti-design was designing an urban area to serve only to skinheads and elevate their story. This is when I realised I actually loved to tell stories with the help of architecture.
3. Best career decision you have made to-date?
I am still searching for a path…
4. If you could have done something differently in your career to date, what would it be?
I would have volunteered more on film productions.
5. Any advice for young designers / creatives?
I am a young designer myself, my advice to myself and people like me is to not limit yourself and try to volunteer work as much as possible.
