How do you define design quality?
Design has the power to move heads and hearts by manifesting brand vision and unmet market needs with a strong and deliberate point of view.
What are the challenges in your everyday work?
A key challenge for me is in retaining a sense of balance and conscious awareness amidst the constantly shifting landscape of growth imperatives, a vast array of project internal/external dynamics, and attention to supporting designers’ growth paths. There are ever-increasing demands on time, and it’s quite easy to become distracted by the ambient noise that is inherently part of a daily routine.
What do you see as being the biggest challenges in your industry at present?
Staying relevant and delivering impact.
