    Industrial Designer

    Tel Aviv, Israel

I think I "Design" ever since I can remember my self, as a small kid fixing old stuff with my father, and braking others just to see what's inside and "how it works". Designing is a passion before anything else, There are a lot of Designers out there who never studied Design. my interests as industrial designer are finding smart, elegant and esthetic solutions, I believe research is an important part of the i.d work, But coming up with crazy, creative, beautiful solutions is what makes us valuable. I enjoy being in nature as much as I can- hiking, rock climbing, cycling ...
