I want to be a designer and can use the ways by myself to create more works to present my options and views about the world.

FS: What is "design" for you?

YD: Till now my last exhibition was held in Xi'an China. That was an exhibition of graduation design. I want to hold my next exhibition near the years later. Because I need to relax and save the energy to creativities works.

FS: Where does the design inspiration for your works come from? How do you feed your creativity? What are your sources of inspirations?

YD: My design style will not be particularly simple, I prefer some complicated graphics. I love the mandala of India and some religious patterns. I will do a lot of sketches before making the design, and finally choose the most appropriate and then make the final look.

FS: How do you work with companies?
YD: First, the company will tell me what their needs. I will be based on their requirements and practical needs, and make a series of research for the case. And ultimately the formation of a customer needs and the market needs will be explain in the report. Then I will give the company three design options to communicate with them. The company's most appreciated program will be taken out. It will be focused on discussion, modification and improvement.

FS: What are your suggestions to companies for working with a designer? How can companies select a good designer?
YD: Both the company and the designer need the patience. When a company selects a designer, it need to understand if the designer's offer and his ability are in match, and in the process of cooperation you two could be stay in a good communication.

FS: Could you please share some pearls of wisdom for young designers? What are your suggestions to young, up and coming designers?
YD: Young designers need more patience to accumulate their own works. Because the designers' ability will be shown in the work. They can go to take part in some games to test their own works. At the same time they also need to know more first-hand design information and look at other good designs. In life, they also need to material accumulation.
