Heesoo Son
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?
HS: In fact, when I was young, my dream was to be an inventor. But as I grew older, I realized that what I wanted was more in touch with the design, and I became more interested in visual design, so I think I've come so far.

FS: Can you tell us more about your company / design studio?
HS: I am still a student so I do not belong to any company or studio.

FS: What kinds of works do you like designing most?
HS: Recently, I feel most interesting and my favorite design is brand design.

FS: What is your most favorite design, could you please tell more about it?
HS: My favorite design is nothing else. Generally, I like a 'reasonable' design that fits the situation and meaning and fits the target.

FS: What was the first thing you designed for a company?
HS: I remember making the logo of the logistics company called 'Fresh Solutions' was the first attempt to design for the company.

FS: What is your favorite material / platform / technology?
HS: I prefer online media as I work on design.

FS: When do you feel the most creative?
HS: Creative moments can be divided into the first moment when you suddenly see something and the second time when all the research is done and you find a logical moment where you find a valid design.

FS: Which aspects of a design do you focus more during designing?
HS: It seems important not only is aesthetic, but also whether the process to which this design comes out is reasonable.

FS: When judging a design as good or bad, which aspects do you consider first?
HS: Whether the design matches the background and the output of the design

FS: From your point of view, what are the responsibilities of a designer for society and environment?
HS: To make it easy for people to read even if it is a manual It reminds me of the saying 'consideration and Empathy'

FS: How do you think the "design field" is evolving? What is the future of design?
HS: I think there will be more design that combines technology.

FS: When was your last exhibition and where was it? And when do you want to hold your next exhibition?
HS: Because I am still a student, the project exhibition that I did at school was the last exhibition. The next exhibition is not yet ready.

HS: I don't think there's a definite source of inspiration.

FS: How would you describe your design style? What made you explore more this style and what are the main characteristics of your style? What's your approach to design?
HS: Reasonably organized design. I always care about the validity of the design.

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?
HS: I live in South Korea. I think I have come to learn the beauty of moderation and try to reflect it in design from the simple yet diverse lifestyle and architectural style of South Korea.

FS: How do you work with companies?
HS: We find a way to draw from what they ask and the data survey.

FS: What are your suggestions to companies for working with a designer? How can companies select a good designer?
HS: I think it would be better to pick someone who understands what the company is asking for and what direction the company is pursuing.

FS: Can you talk a little about your design process?
HS: Based on an overall survey of the goals to be designed, I choose factors to design and solve them in a story.

FS: Could you please share some pearls of wisdom for young designers? What are your suggestions to young, up and coming designers?
HS: Instead of pursuing aesthetic, think about the goal of design and try to solve the inconvenience or design it so that it can lead in a better

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