Product Designer at Samson Design Associates
Hi, I'm an international student from Japan, and freshly graduated with a degree in Industrial Design.
I love design because it is a creative process that solves real and practical needs that I can use to make a definite impact in this world. I believe design applies the arts together with science and technology to create great experiences for the end user. Yay!
