“For me I feel that listening to every individual opinions is very important when working in a team. To never belittle any comment even from someone who has a different skill set from myself as it will eventually become very helpful.”
Some of my design inspirations really varies depending on what I am working on at that moment that informs my body of work. However, I really like “fucking young!” as an online platform and I usually take my inspiration from there if I am working on a project that has a younger target audience for photography.
Also, I recently fell in love with Dieter Roth as an artist. His iconic artist’s books in particular is something that I admire and my aesthetics if I am given freedom usually comes from him as he really has such an open mind when it comes to his work and often challenge boundaries.

Communication is key in a team and having diverse characters is a good thing because brings more depth to the work that I’m doing . It will take time to get used to the collaborative aspect when it comes to designing or image making as it takes effort to listen to others' opinions, but it brings a lot of advantages as you learn to assess your own work more critically from various points of view.
Design gives a voice to the voiceless. Design aids people of their everyday lives - it gives direction and offers revelation. Everything is design, be it the signboards you see, pictures along the streets, and even the books that you read. Therefore I believe that design is an extremely powerful means for communication, for it touches every single one of us at some point in our lives even if it is in the most subtle ways.
