What do you understand by good communication design?
We think the critical thing about communication design is understanding the user and providing what he wants. That means, we are always on the lookout for what the user wants and needs. Achieving that makes design successful and clever.
Which of your projects has been
the biggest challenge for you so far?
For this project, we merged our two roles. As a result, we managed to create an interactive digital device with analogue aesthetics.
Why did you become a communication designer?
Communication design is something essential that has no boundaries. We therefore want to try new things and challenge ourselves.
What else would you like to learn?
We want to learn more about interaction and product design.
