What makes you want to study design and be a designer? I am a designer because I can't
imagine doing anything else. I am an observer, a thinker, and a doer. Designing is a plethora
of jobs in one, and more importantly there are many solutions to one problem. I like making
people think a certain way. I like organizing. I like breaking rules. I like to persuade people.
I like thinking wrong. I like informing, but mostly, I like to make things look cool.
