Design is the future, the vision and the creation of it, inspiring minds and leading the masses. At least that’s my personal view of it. I enjoy working with the mind, so it might not surprise you that I love and respect the many diverse disciplines of design, and what I don’t know I’m eager to learn, the more I learn the more I have the ability to imagine and create.
What was the reason for you to study visual communication?
When the time came to choose between studying science or something more artistic, I watched the Lord of the Rings behind the scenes footage and was completely inspired by how they built Middle Earth. I wanted to create rich, almost tangible worlds like they do, and it’s a lot easier to invent with design then through the time consuming scientific process.
