Director, PPlusP Group
“There is more to design than making it beautiful. I design to give meaning to something, which is then perceived as being a beautiful experience. One cannot expect to achieve such a creation without understanding, and you cannot truly understand if you are not passionate. In that sense, I can confidently follow my decisions. If I was to offer an advice to anyone it would be … to pursue your obsession and everything else will follow. It certainly has for me.”
