Interview with Sena Jinen at Wednesday 2nd of May 2018

FS: What is "design" for you?
SJ: Seeking to solve daily problems with empathy.

FS: Which aspects of a design do you focus more during designing?
SJ: Thinking about the user, all thetime.

FS: Where does the design inspiration for your works come from? How do you feed your creativity? What are your sources of inspirations?
SJ: From other designer works, furniture stores can be a mix of colors or textures, learning about other industries, traveling to foreign countries, having a conversation with foreigners about their day-to-day lifestyle and patterns and so on… In these days also internetis the endless scrollingdesignfeed…My own peers is also a source of inspiration. Even just listening to them, sharing ideas hearing their perspectives on those ideas is a big source of inspiration for me. Shoutout to my dearest friends from my masters class, you know who you are!Also some podcasts! Recently one of my closest friends recommended me a podcast called ‘Art Café’ that I become addicted shortly after. It is a live talk show in which some of the top artists from around the world to chat candidly about their experiences in the industry.

FS: What are your suggestions to companies for working with a designer? How can companies select a good designer?
SJ: To pick someone who do not sit down to work just to get paid and get it off their shoulder as soon as possible. Wanting to finish any design in a hurry without any enthusiasm is a trap that you set for yourself- it will eventually lead you to failure and an unhappy customer.

FS: Can you talk a little about your design process?
SJ: Design starts with the owner and understanding their needs. The first step is always to examine and analyze and research. After determining the frame, everything else will come smoothly in order…

FS: What is your "golden rule" in design?
SJ: To be human-centered.

FS: Designing can sometimes be a really time consuming task, how do you manage your time?
SJ: Over time, I have learned to focus on the things I want to focus on in the time frame that I set. Everyone who knows me knows that I have my black notebook with me all the time to make a list of some of the key tasks I work. Every morning I look back at the list to prioritize my duties and make sure to focus on those tasks on that day.

FS: What are your future plans? What is next for you?
SJ: I want everyone to see the whole picture &understand howpersonal everything is to me. I will do my best & just put it out, thatsimple...


FS: Thank you for providing us with this opportunity to interview you.
