Currently working as an educational media designer at the Higher Education Development Centre, University of Otago, NZ. I develop and design educational applications, run workshops and do consultations relating to design and its role in teaching and learning. Graduated from the European institute of design (IED), Milan, Italy. Have a 10 year experience as a freelancer focusing mainly on branding, including promotions for "adidas", MOTOROLA & "ebay" on mobile platforms.
The relationship between design and education. In particular, creative processes and their implications across disciplines in the 21st century.
What I find beautiful about the process of design is that there is no "right answer". There is no "one solution" and you don't know what you're getting yourself into until you get there. A concept, that for many may be frightening. However, as a designer, I find that ambiguity is what puts the spark in my eyes. It's a challenge, a mystery, and above all - an opportunity to find creative solutions.
When I thought to myself what is it that I would like to do in my life, I realized that what I enjoy most is finding complex webs of needs and "realities" and finding a ray of light that could shine through them. That to me is the essence of design.
The world is full of complexities and is hungry for creative solutions. I see educators as having the responsibility of equipping students with the tools to handle these complexities and find solutions for a better future. The creative process, embraced and taught by teachers, seems to be one tool that can help accomplish that.
Anything, and especially about design, education and technology. I'm intrigued by their impact on one another and am interested in hearing more about them.
