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?

FS: What kind of emotions do you feel when your designs are realized?

FS: What makes a design successful?
AJ: Do you mean that successful designs are beautiful for us or we like that design? If yes, it's very subjective. If you want a formula for it, you can't do it because it is a very complex thing. You can only follow your heart and feelings when you design.

FS: When judging a design as good or bad, which aspects do you consider first?
AJ: Is this the simpliest or best solution?

AJ: I think that only people around us can affect our design, not a country, where we born.

FS: Can you talk a little about your design process?
AJ: I always need a stroke of genius, then comes the brainstorming,skething , then modelling it in 3D. If I have money to do it in real life, I do it.

FS: Can you describe a day in your life?
AJ: I cannot describe my days of my life. Every day is different. I work, I sleep, I have fun with my friends when I want or have time for it. When I work a lot , and when the work is done after that I am a little bit lazy sometimes. But after relaxing I always start a new project, because I always have ideas what I have to draw and work on it. I can say that my hobby is my work.

FS: Could you please share some pearls of wisdom for young designers? What are your suggestions to young, up and coming designers?
AJ: I am young too so I can say that do not give up your dreams, beacuse the best thing what you can do in your life is fighting for something or someone.

FS: From your perspective, what would you say are some positives and negatives of being a designer?
