How did you become a designer?
I would say it is my choice. Since I was a kid, I love to draw and I love to ask questions. Until now I still like to ask questions and love to solve them. To me, designers are people who could solve problems in life.
What are your priorities, technique and style when designing?
I would say it is my choice. Since I was a kid, I love to draw and I love to ask questions. Until now I still like to ask questions and love to solve them. To me, designers are people who could solve problems in life.

The value of good design is to solve problems for people. This is the reason why people should invest it, because good design is for solving problems, and make higher value.

There is a list. But on the top of the list is a monument or a memorial, which could really touch people
How do you know if a product or project is well designed? How do you define good design?
The secret is to find out what the clients really want. I would not just follow the generally used recipe. I’d like to make a decent meal with simple ingredients, and just for the customer.
Would you tell us a bit about your lifestyle and culture?
To find out the authentic factors of a space. To listen to the real needs of people.
