Interview with Jenifer Blanco Monzón

Could you please tell us more about your art and design background? What made you become an artist/designer? Have you always wanted to be a designer?
After school I studied 1 year engineering but felt that that was not for me, so I got into Design and loved every part of it. I was lucky that my parents supported me all the way and got the opportunity tu study in a very good design institute (one of the best in Caracas Venezuela actually). Then I moved to Buenos Aires, Argentina and studied Art Direction that gave me a more integral knowledge. I learn about photography, history, advertising and much more. I always liked crafting and that is what I do in my free time.
Can you tell us more about your company / design studio?
Jen Blanco Design Studio is a place full of creativity where the search for inspiration and happiness never stops. The set design, art direction and photography are combined in almost every project, looking for the best ways to communicate an idea. Passion, enthusiasm and integrity are never going to lack on this Studio, so is fun and collaboration. Make play into work & work into play!
What kinds of works do you like designing most?
Projects that involve crafting, painting, lettering, photography or all of them combined!
When do you feel the most creative?
When I am creating, because when you are in the middle of a project you always get more and more ideas, hence get more and more excited about it.
Which aspects of a design do you focus more during designing?
The concept. I believe that a project always has to have a concept that represent it.
What kind of emotions do you feel when your designs are realized?
Completely happy. Proud of myself and the ones that helped me in any way.
What makes a design successful?
When a design in understood without the need to explain it I believe it is successful.
When judging a design as good or bad, which aspects do you consider first?
if it communicates what it was men to communicate. If it is well executed, it has clean finishes. If it has a well thanked chromatic palette.
Where does the design inspiration for your works come from? How do you feed your creativity? What are your sources of inspirations?
I loved to surf the web. Watch others work, watch movies, photography exhibitions, go to museums, take a walk, listen to music. Creativity comes from all around us!
How would you describe your design style? What made you explore more this style and what are the main characteristics of your style? What's your approach to design?
I think I do not have a specific style. I like to use different materials and mediums. Explore different concepts and adapt to the project I am working.
Where do you live? Do you feel the cultural heritage of your country affects your designs? What are the pros and cons during designing as a result of living in your country?
I am from Venezuela but currently live in Argentina. I think I have been influenced by both Venezuela and Argentina. They are two super different cultures but at the same time we are all Latinos. Venezuela has a tropical and Caribbean flavor and Argentina has a more European touch. If you combine those two, you get me! I love to put lots of colors and passion into my projects and I am sure that I got that from the combination of both countries.
Do you work as a team, or do you develop your designs yourself?
I do both but I love working with a team because the more people there are in the project, the richer the result.
How can people contact you?
Through my website or Instagram, Behance & LinkedIn through my handle @jenblancodesign or in any case my mail

Could you please tell us a bit about your design background and education?
I studied graphic design in Caracas, Venezuela where I am from and then came to Argentina to study Art Direction. I really love the botch of them but I prefer Art Direction because it is more complete. You have to know about design, and also movies, photography, history, and a lot more ir order to be more confident and have better results.
What motivates you to design in general, why did you become a designer?
Because I could not picture myself doing anything else. Design makes me happy and I think everyone should do what makes them happy!
What do you design, what type of designs do you wish to design more of?
I love to make things with my hands, that is why I love set design and crafting. I wish I can make more of that.
What is the value of good design? Why should everyone invest in good design?
Because design surround us everyday everywhere. We see design from a box of cereals, to a ballot. So for people to understand better what they are reading and what they want to get, design has to be involve.
What would you design and who would you design for if you had the time?
I would love to design for Wes Anderson and work with him in one of his movies!
What is the dream project you haven’t yet had time to realize?
I am wishing to be involved in the art direction and set design of a big movie. That would be a dream come true!
What are your favorite designs by other designers, why do you like them?
I love Jessica Walsh's design because it is disruptive, super creative and unique. She uses bright colores that pop and she is always overcoming. I love her work!
How could people improve themselves to be better designers, what did you do?
Researching a lot, reading, watching movies, and never stop creating. You can never be too creative! And practices makes perfect (although I don't think perfect even exists).
What’s your ultimate goal as a designer?
I want to help people with my designs and I want to help younger designers too in the future! I would love to have my own physical studio (like a real place) and be a community where designers go and create all the time.
What is the role of technology when you design?
I love technology but I don't only rely on it because I love starting from analog and then go to digital if its necessary.
How do you feel about all the awards and recognition you had, is it hard to be famous?
I don't feel famous at all. I just feel better accomplishing something new and getting to share my work with others.
Please tell us a little memoir, a funny thing you had experienced as a designer?
when I got out of school I studied engineering for a year. I didn't feel like I belonged there, so I wrote a letter to my parent saying that I wasn't happy and that I wanted to change to graphic design. Luckily I have the best parents and they wanted the best for me. So I changed and loved everything about studying design!!
What makes your day great as a designer, how do you motivate yourself?
I love watching Ted talks and inspirational videos because others success makes me want to accomplish things and become not only a better designer but also a better person.
When you were a little child, was it obvious that you would become a great designer?
Not at all. My parents are engineers and I always liked to paint and draw but never saw myself as a designer growing up. But now that I am a designer I don't picture myself doing anything else!
