WHAT I LEARNED
How great this design industry really is, especially when working with
people who are not just your co-workers, but are considered friends and
compatriots (the family-like atmosphere in the studios). It was an amazing
experience and truly inspiring to be in the company of designers and
thinkers, to really hear what my potential future may be like.
CAREER GOALS & INTERESTS
To work in a design studio as a designer or a design manager, creating
experiences that will give meaning for people.
- Viewing the Alessi museum achieve was phenomenal; I will probably
never have a chance such as that.
- Group dinner at Pitigliano, experiencing the joy of tasting food and the
work that the owner put into each dish
- "What is good idea, what is true, is necessity to do. It is not important,
new. Why new, what is new, new is different? New is … what?"
