Design philosophy
It’s a lot about finding the right balance between the concept, the technique and the purpose in a good solution. Go to the essence, to the need, remove all the unnecessary and then play with the basic elements.
Explore the possibilities and pick up the ideas that provoke a certain impression of genuine and relevant. It is a very intuitive process but in a way it’s a search for the unexpected and the familiar at the same time. It can be a small detail or a more radical interpretation but it has to be recognizable and feel very natural.
