Senior Designer , Lecturer
I am a Versatile Industrial Designer with 7 years of Industry experience. Fun, crazy , outgoing and would like to experience working in overseas. Simplicity is my design philosophy. Simplicity isn’t just a visual style. It’s not just minimalism or the absence of clutter. It involves digging through the depth of the complexity. That's the reason i love the challenge of making products simple to use.
