Don’t study design…

It’s certainly a bit controversial but this statement just about sums up my mantra as a designer.

I believe in a good balance of work and play. As a creative playing means being curious, trying out new things and collecting inspiration along the way.

Everything you see around you can be inspiration and one item I would add to the list is this: study languages!

Having lived in three countries so far, I speak German, English, French and Spanish fluently. This curiosity and passion for languages, culture and travel continues to open so many doors for me and even impacts my work as a designer.

It just means I get to look at things from more than just one perspective.
