Extended Interview with Guillermo Fok De Jesus

Could you please tell us about your experience as a designer, artist, architect or creator?
I have a B.S. in industrial Engineering and an MFA in Industrial Design from Rochester Institute of Technology.
How did you become a designer?
I was constantly going back and forth between my creative and technical curiosity. Industrial Design allowed me to explore both and use both skills to create new products and experiences
Which emotions do you feel when designing?
I am lucky enough to be able to develop products and live experiences, which was my goal when i graduated
What particular aspects of your background shaped you as a designer?
Figure out what design path makes you happy and work hard for it. If you really set your mind to it, the opportunities will come
What is your growth path? What are your future plans? What is your dream design project?
understanding that the user and the designer are two different people. As designers it is our job to create solutions for a user
What are your advices to designers who are at the beginning of their career?
it should be a marriage between functionality , feasibility and aesthetics. A great design should never lack any f those three aspects.
You are truly successful as a designer, what do you suggest to fellow designers, artists and architects?
Good design should be self explanatory and self promoting. Good design should be able to sell itself without persuading being needed.
What is your day to day look like?
I would love to continue designing travel accessories. I am interested in developing more products for the senior demographic .
How do you decide if your design is ready?
I love designers with a unique an eclectic mind, I would say currently the legend designers I look up to are Marcel Wanders and Ross Lovegrove but I have a unique admiration for Norman Bel Geddes, his vision and his over the top creativity.
What is your biggest design work?
I love the Futurama exhibition by Norman Bel Geddes for the 1939 World's Fair. It was a full display of creativity with no boundaries and an exceptional level of showmanship that came from his theatrical background.
Who is your favourite designer?
I am very proud of the series of products created under errant and cheval. I have used this as an outlet of my love and passion for travel, art deco and the history of transportation.
Would you tell us a bit about your lifestyle and culture?
Keep learning about new materials and processes. Always see what other designers are doing and what the trends are so you understand where design in general is going and how much you want or not want to be a part of it.
What are your philanthropic contributions to society as a designer, artist and architect?
design is solving a problem in an efficient , cost effective and elegant way
What positive experiences you had when you attend the A’ Design Award?
The faculty at RIT were always very supportive and a huge influence in my development as a designer
