Design and Art Philosophy
Advanced artistic education prior to university helped me in developing strong drawing, rendering skills, a good sense of color and composition. I have a deep appreciation for the design process and I believe that a final product cannot be successful without thorough research and analysis. A designer should be capable to use this process and combine it with his/her creative abilities and skills in order to create products that provide a valuable experience to the user.
