What is your favorite item in your workspace?

It would have to be my quartz table top which I absolutely love working from and looking at, but a small part of me loves the completely unpractical Iron Man MK II helmet way too much.

How do you spark creativity?

Sometimes through reference material and remixing other designer’s work that I admire. It’s not a rigorous process, I feel that it’s very random and can’t be turned on like that. Anything trivial I could suggest has probably already crossed your mind.

How do you manage work-life balance?

I’m not very good at doing that, especially with a workspace that has become my favorite room at home. Though, I try not to force myself to be creative and take regular breaks where I usually go walking or running.
