I’m really curious, need to know how things work and to get behind the scenes.
I love making things. Especially if it have moving parts or electronics
I can’t help to think of ways to improve things in my surrounding and make them better.
I want to help people!
In all my work I always strive to make something better for the user. If it’s a product, there could be a clearly defined button that tells you exactly what is does, or a complex interface that lets you help yourself when in need, or even something as a business card that is not only good looking and have your name on it but also have that extra space so your client can write down a note about you when receiving it and thus remembers you.
My goal is always to do what you really want, maybe not always what you ask for.
