Interview with Dot 3 at Wednesday 17th of April 2019

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?
D: I am an Interior designer by discipline, I loved it actually but I take an interest in many things. I was a maths student in my early years in high school actually and I still remember in year 8, I got a D- from my art teacher. At 17, I knew but was very scared however with a leap of faith and a friend's encouragement I chose. It's really right for me but I probably would have said the same thing if I had ended up being a photographer or a chef something. As long as I get to have ideas I'm good.

FS: What is "design" for you?
D: It's balancing and subtracting.

FS: What kinds of works do you like designing most?
D: I like interior, furniture and jewelry. I think in general, something I can realize and touch. For example I don't have the same high when I think about graphics and multimedia.

FS: What is your most favorite design, could you please tell more about it?
D: I don't know if there's a favorite.

FS: What was the first thing you designed for a company?
D: A sales center if you don't count a tiny bar.

FS: When do you feel the most creative?
D: No rules there I think but in general after a jog.

FS: Which aspects of a design do you focus more during designing?
D: Depends on the project

FS: When judging a design as good or bad, which aspects do you consider first?
D: It's all linked. The balance of these aspects.

FS: How do you think the "design field" is evolving? What is the future of design?
D: Is somebody supposed to really know the answer to the future of design? I don't.

FS: When was your last exhibition and where was it? And when do you want to hold your next exhibition?
D: I'm painting a lot recently. I'll tell you if I have one. If ever.

FS: Where does the design inspiration for your works come from? How do you feed your creativity? What are your sources of inspirations?
D: Changes all the time and hopefully continues to.

FS: Where do you live? Do you feel the cultural heritage of your country affects your designs? What are the pros and cons during designing as a result of living in your country?
D: Right now I live in Beijing

FS: Can you talk a little about your design process?
D: I think, I draw, I get stuck, I leave it, sleep,run walk cook or whatever and start again.

FS: Can you describe a day in your life?
D: Not really, it changes all the time. The only constant the last few years is either running or meditating.

FS: What is your "golden rule" in design?
D: None. Wait, maybe this. After about after 3/4 years working as a designer, I noticed that for most projects whatever I'm working on I usually do arrive at a point when I feel it's the right solution. Not think but feel and if I don't get there I usually don't stop.

FS: What skills are most important for a designer?
D: The ability to see it in your head and hopefully feel it.

FS: How can people contact you?
D: dot3jewelry.com. On most social media @dot3jewelry except on Linkedin. Just Hong Tran or email me at hong.tran@dot3jewelry.com. Do get in touch. Especially if you are a teenager unsure about design and too scared to ask questions, I'll get back to you.


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