FS: What kind of emotions do you feel when you design?

FS: What kind of emotions do you feel when your designs are realized?
CCB: I feel more gratitude and a lot of responsibility how the people will use each projected space. It´s like a son that was born and you have to take care of him.

FS: What makes a design successful?
CCB: I think the success begins in the mind. A good design is completed when it comes with passion, empathy, emotions and good intentions.

FS: When judging a design as good or bad, which aspects do you consider first?
CCB: I consider who will use this space, what kind of emotions I feel when I saw the fist time, what kind of materials were used, the harmony of the elements, pieces and objects, the durability of the materials chosen, the susteinable of the project´s concept.

FS: From your point of view, what are the responsibilities of a designer for society and environment?
CCB: The most important responsibility of a designer is the possibility of change the behavior of a community and how the project could transform the environment around, how the project involve the people and inspire to be better than before.

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?
CCB: Brazil is a growing country with great creative potential. Access to local art, music, history and culture, favors the creation of a design focused on these aspects. What you need is a more sustainable look to protect natural resources.

FS: How do you work with companies?
CCB: First, I like to know the company's rules for starting any job. We do a very thorough interview to find out her expectations regarding our work. After that we will interact with respect and efficiency.

FS: What are your suggestions to companies for working with a designer? How can companies select a good designer?
CCB: it must first analyze its learning capacity, its relationship skills, its effective production capacity and its desire to always offer the best for the company.

FS: Can you talk a little about your design process?
CCB: First step when starting any design is to physically analyze the entire area we have to work with and assess the needs of the project. After that I set up a flow chart and study of masses. This is the birth of yet another project.

FS: What are 5 of your favorite design items at home?
CCB: The kitchen, the dining room, the living room, the bedroom, the external area.

FS: Can you describe a day in your life?
CCB: My day is always challenging. Starting by reconciling my work, countless professional commitments to domestic tasks, children, husband and personal activities. Every day is a new beginning and I feel like an opportunity to idealize, produce and make a difference in the world.

FS: Could you please share some pearls of wisdom for young designers? What are your suggestions to young, up and coming designers?
CCB: The first thing to a successful way is having a professional ethic. Respect the people you live with. A successful professional path is not based only in talent, emotional control is often more important than an excellent design. Make your profession a love affair, don't just use it to earn money.

FS: From your perspective, what would you say are some positives and negatives of being a designer?
CCB: Positives: working on ideas, creating something new and expanding the mind. Every day we have new challenges. Creating spaces for people is a great gift for me. Do and construct something that was once just a thought. Always be learning, taking courses to improve, researching to know about new technologies and structure systems. Negative points: Some projects created will not be carried out. Being responsible for the work of other professionals, demanding punctuality and efficiency, an arduous task of production control. Find out an efficient team to construct the building exactly as the project design.

CCB: Researches on websites, software, pencil and paper.

FS: Designing can sometimes be a really time consuming task, how do you manage your time?
CCB: The time during the design is relative. Ideas often flow quickly but must be matured. Time should be monitored like other creative tasks.

FS: How long does it take to design an object from beginning to end?
CCB: It depends on the type and complexity of the project. In general, the main idea comes quickly, on the same day as the beginning, but it changes throughout the project.
