What do you understand by good communication design?
The ability to move hearts.
What are the qualities a successful
communication designer must have?
I think communication designers should be able to understand “society and culture” and the shared value within both. They should also have the ability to envision the future through creativity.
What kind of project would you like to realise?
FRUM is currently planning a couple of brand campaigns not confined to geographic locations or certain nations. Thus, we would like to achieve successful global communication, which continuously grows in value and reflects the shared understanding of different people.
