Thoughts on Design

Above all, I like design that is fun, beautiful, interesting, and exciting. I want to be amused, impressed, frustrated, and overturned by every single thing that designers all over the world have created, and I hope to create something that will make people feel the same way. For me, design is a perfect playground where the joy of seeing and creating can be fully satisfied.
