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?
PSB: I started of as a mechanical engineer in Under grads but realised that I was more of a hands on problem solver than what I got in engineering school.

FS: What is "design" for you?
PSB: Design to me is creating something for a purpose. The purpose can be solving a problem to just a decorative piece in your home. Its about the process of why you create and what you create.

FS: Which aspects of a design do you focus more during designing?

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

FS: What makes a design successful?
PSB: It does what its meant to do in a intuitive way for the user and is well thought out from colors to forms and fillets.
