“My graduation work... Was a great opportunity for me to familiarize myself with a new medium and field of discipline (graphic concrete and architecture) I hadn’t had the chance to work with before. Also, it was extremely interesting to carry out an entire product development process right from the research phase to strategy, design instructions and implementation.”
