AM I A FUTURE DESIGNER?

His/her work consists of identifying needs and responding to them in an innovative way. The designer is neither an artist nor an engineer, even if his/her artistic sense leads him to propose aesthetic solutions and his pragmatic mind to confront them with industrial requirements
