“what I best like about product design is that it gives you the chance to bring to life concepts or ideas in tangible objects. I am also interested about the negotiations between function, aesthetic and fun. the ingredient i add in this negotiation (wether conscious or unconscious) is humour. The retranca (typical galician wit) or the “riquiñez” (galician word for cuteness) can give value to any design, make it more communicative and add more readings”.
