What is "design" for you?
For me Design is Nothing but Thinking, Innovation and Responsibility.
What kinds of works do you like designing most?
My gratest concern as a designer is Designing the people's everyday life. I mean the things that may not be noticed at the first glance but their importance can be understood with a little attention.
What is your favorite material / platform / technology?
As many other designers, I prefer to start on paper, drawing some rough sketches to find the form and function that I'm looking for. After that I start to evolve the design by some detailed drawings and then it comes to computer. I Prefer to model my designs using rhino3D and render them on 3dsMax
Which aspects of a design do you focus more during designing?
I believe usability and affordance are the most important aspects of a designed product but having a uniqe form and gestalt is also a requirement

A design will be successful When it saves people from potential dangers or it rescues the culture of a society from disasters

The most important aspect will be having positive influence on the culture and after that ease of use and beauty
From your point of view, what are the responsibilities of a designer for society and environment?
I believe that we, designers are one of the most responsible groups towards soceity since we can pervert the people's culture or elevate it by our designs.We are always connected to people, and make them Hopeful or desperate, joyful or depressed, healthy or sick, and all of these are somehow outcomes of our designs
How do you think the "design field" is evolving? What is the future of design?
Design is also evolving like other professions and what is concerning about it is the presence of designers who are aware of needs of society
When was your last exhibition and where was it? And when do you want to hold your next exhibition?
I have not had an exhibition before but I hope with my progress in such competitions I can have my own Design exhibition
What are your suggestions to companies for working with a designer? How can companies select a good designer?
Restricting the designer allways comes into tedious results. They should let the designers work on their own inspirations based on the projects. As we can see the innovation in such design competitions.
Can you talk a little about your design process?
Thinking, Creativity, extraxting innovative parameters, basic sketches, analysis of basic sketches, rivision, finding the best design, rivision of the best design, Final design
Can you describe a day in your life?
Studying, reading, communication with family, talking with friends, praying
How long does it take to design an object from beginning to end?
A normal sketch with details will take upto 24 hours but if we want to model it and create a 3D render it will take upto 48 hours
What type of design work do you enjoy the most and why?
I enjoy designing everyday life tools and products, I always love to redesign what has became an ordinary part of peoples life
