Where and what do you draw inspiration from?
I’m a very observational and visual person and believe inspiration can come from anywhere at any time. I often snap pictures with my iPhone regardless of where I am or what I’m doing and store them for later use as a project need arises.. I tend to draw creative inspiration from all products beautiful in form, color and texture—especially products and services that include a unique user experience.
What is your favorite Blue Clover Studios project to date?
We are currently working on several user centered design projects that are very interesting as we get to work directly with consumers and observe them in their natural habitat to drive out inspiration. This is an approach to design thinking where we place emphasis on consumer’s product usage behaviors through design research methods.
What do you enjoy doing outside of work?
I love spending time with my wife and kids watching them play sports and excel with their academics. I am also into fitness and cycling for mental therapy as it keeps my physically strong while keeping my mood and outlook on the world in balance.
