The Future of Design

“The world is becoming very savvy – both visually and about information. The energy and times are hypertrophic and consumers are perpetually interested in being stimulated, in being excited about their physical environment. It is the residue of the digital age. Everything needs to be designed. I see the future of our aesthetic world crossing all the aesthetic disciplines so that design, art, architecture, fashion, food, music, fuse together to increase our experiences and bring greater pleasure to our material and immaterial lives. Our motivations should focus around our conscious collective memory and a desire to fill it with ideas that are seamless between art and life. I bring differentiation, innovation, and human needs and desires to companies– all necessary in business today, without this, brands will not survive in our shrinking global highly competitive market place.”
