I will try to keep growing my ability from now.
What influenced you to take graphic design?
It has been the most fun to draw something since I was a child. Although I did not know the design, expressing everything by hand was interesting. Imagination like creating, tearing, and assembling something made me do graphic design.
What do you consider as your big break as a designer?
When I became a designer, nothing special influenced me. I just liked beautiful forms of product, admired the great layout and was fascinated by the amazing video.Each time when I tried to identify the intention of the work and I solved it, I was fascinated by Attractiveness of the design. Then, I wanted to be a designer like them.
What inspires you to design and create?
I take inspiration from everything. Everything which I can see gives me inspiration. Falling object’s movement, the form of broken glass, and post-it which put it up without thinking tell me about motion, layout, and form of them.
What is a day like for you? What projects or activity usually takes most of your time?
Usually, I try to watch a movie and read a book. Because I should still learn many things, everything which is shown to me is a learning target. Of course, I do not neglect about learning design features. When I find a great design, I actually try to make sketches and implement it on the computer.
Do you have a signature style? How did you develop it?

Currently, holographic video is in progress. It is the team project and now in progress, I cannot tell the details.
Do you experiment with new mediums or techniques?
The work we’re doing now is the most experimental and new ways of video.
Do you have any new projects that we should look out for from you?
It is very important to look at many works and to listen to colleagues about design when learning about design and designing works personally. It helps me get more knowledge, experience and good sense. But embracing ideas can also make me confused. So it is essential to establish my own standard. I will make my own design by balancing my own standard and trend. And to do so I am still studying many things.
