I am a self-motivated design student who thrives on going out of his comfort zone in order to become a better designer. The combination of the knowledge that I have accumulated through University and the experience I had acquired through my placement, it has benefitted me into becoming a better designer. Research is the catalyst that drives my designs, without the research, I cannot comprehend the characteristics of my target users. My designs are user-driven, taking into consideration the on how my products will be interacted with from the beginning to the end of the products lifespan. Functionality, feasibility and aesthetics are the main aspects of my designs that I constantly reflect upon during the design process, critically assessing every decision that I make.
Through my placement, I had experienced being an interior design assistant where I had explored a different scale of design, which had expanded my knowledge of the design world and has helped me understand that time-management is a key skill in the design industry.
