“In my opinion design should be humble; it fails often as designers try to hard to create in their words “design”. I try to create products with magical simplicity; products should be able to tell their own “story” to the consumer.
I hate most times the intellectual approach towards ‘design matters’. It feels difficult, but also not necessary for me, to explain my philosophy towards others concerning ‘making products and why’ The end result/product should be self explanatory. I personally always question the legitimacy of a product before I introduce it to my clients. One thing is for sure: emotion is definitely the most important key to a successful product."
