Interview with Ionut Sur at Thursday 18th of April 2013
Ionut Sur
FS: Could you please tell us more about your art and design background? What made you become an artist/designer? Have you always wanted to be a designer?
IS: My passion for design was born in my father's woodworking shop; because of the limited resources available to us we were forced to always improvise and think creatively. This led me to develop a passion for problem solving and acted as the foundation stone for my future as a designer.

FS: What is "design" for you?
IS: Freedom

FS: What kinds of works do you like designing most?
IS: I especially enjoy industrial design, because of the challenges and the complexity.

FS: What is your most favorite design, could you please tell more about it?
IS: Any design that was completed without any compromises.

FS: What was the first thing you designed for a company?
IS: It was a calendar witch presented (through drawings) the Art Nouveau architecture of my home town. This was in my first year of high school.

FS: What is your favorite material / platform / technology?
IS: I enjoy working especially with wood and plastic. Wood because as a material is alive and demands respect; plastic because is very easy to use.

FS: When do you feel the most creative?
IS: All the time.

FS: Which aspects of a design do you focus more during designing?
IS: When designing I try to focus on all the aspects at once, from ergonomics to marketing. If I focus only on a single aspect, problems soon emerge.

FS: What kind of emotions do you feel when your designs are realized?
IS: For me the greatest feeling is when I can hold in my hands the project that has been "trapped' in my head.

FS: What makes a design successful?
IS: When it fully accomplishes its purpose.

FS: When judging a design as good or bad, which aspects do you consider first?
IS: Functionality

FS: From your point of view, what are the responsibilities of a designer for society and environment?
IS: Design to solve problems, not to create new ones.

FS: How do you think the "design field" is evolving? What is the future of design?
IS: The future of design? As long as humanity will evolve, design will evolve at the same rate. Design will stop only when humanity will stop.

FS: How would you describe your design style? What made you explore more this style and what are the main characteristics of your style? What's your approach to design?
IS: Best way of describing my style would be "old school".

FS: Could you please share some pearls of wisdom for young designers? What are your suggestions to young, up and coming designers?
IS: The best advice is: Work, Work, Work. The rest will soon follow.

FS: From your perspective, what would you say are some positives and negatives of being a designer?
IS: I can only think of positive ones.

FS: What is your "golden rule" in design?
IS: Good research and the Golden Ratio.

FS: What skills are most important for a designer?
IS: I think the most important skill is drawing.

FS: Designing can sometimes be a really time consuming task, how do you manage your time?
IS: It is important to start the day with a well organized schedule.

FS: How long does it take to design an object from beginning to end?
IS: It depends on the project.

FS: What are your future plans? What is next for you?
IS: I am looking for a creative and challenging environment.

FS: Do you work as a team, or do you develop your designs yourself?
IS: Because of my current environment I develop all my designs myself. But I enjoy teamwork very much.

FS: How can people contact you?
IS: email: surionut@ymail.com / telphone: +40 0726 140 048
