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?
GG: I like to say that my design is a minimalist way answer for the world's problems. I become an designer because I consider that this profession will fulfill my desire to create good products for people need. In our daily routine we interact with objects that improve our life or confuse it. That's why less means more. And less means functional simplicity.

I create sustainable concepts, and lately I'm experimenting with new materials to find better green solutions.

FS: What is your most favorite design, could you please tell more about it?
GG: My most favorite design is Fragrance Lamp serie, because it has the essential ingredient, one of my favorite and liked by many people because of his potential in aromatherapy and medicine. I used the lavender flower seeds because I think it is a good ally to have in your house. It helps you in different ways. Also it is a ecological way for lighting and has perfume.

FS: What was the first thing you designed for a company?
GG: The first thing I design for a company was a proposal concept called: Delta Pendant Lamp, with who I won the Delta Craft competition. The lighting object was inspired by the traditional life of the craftsmen who live in the Danube areas. It's made entirely from adobe material(earth land).

FS: What is your favorite material / platform / technology?

GG: I feel good, liberated, creative, I feel I can bring a change through my design.

FS: What kind of emotions do you feel when your designs are realized?
GG: The best emotions in the worldwide. Obvious is a great feeling for every designer to know that the product designed is finished and can be produced.

FS: What makes a design successful?
GG: Good insight, simple vision and great functions. Less means more, that's why is so complicated to deliver something successful 100%. But you keep trying to improve it until you feel that it's enough.

FS: When judging a design as good or bad, which aspects do you consider first?
GG: Green classification and how functional it is, if indeed it is realized for the user experience or just for another beautiful object However, there is also bad design that is good in its category (If that was the intention).

FS: From your point of view, what are the responsibilities of a designer for society and environment?
GG: I would say that 90%, it's our duty to deliver good environmental product design. We need to change the perspective of the consumers, we need to educate them for for both interests: their live and the environmental status.

FS: Where does the design inspiration for your works come from? How do you feed your creativity? What are your sources of inspirations?
GG: My inspiration many times comes from nature. Also from society problems, from my daily routine and from the people who I work with. For exemple, it is interesting how people react in different situations or places. Body language is very important for the empathy design process.

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?

FS: How do you work with companies?
GG: Usually I work with project or collaborations. Right now, I'm having freelance graphic design works.

FS: What are your suggestions to companies for working with a designer? How can companies select a good designer?
GG: You will figure out who is a good designer for your company only after you have a debate solution with them. Every designer is good for a company and less good for another one. I think it's about the knowledge, accurate work, simplicity in process and understanding the right purpose to create not an expected delivery but a very good unexpected proposal.

FS: Can you talk a little about your design process?
GG: Experiments matter most. I work with a timeline stable by me, an estimated time, the idea paths & choosing the right final idea for development. After that, I like to work on the UX process to fulfill better the consumer expectation

GG: google assistant; drawing tablet; workspace desk; notebook; pencil; and also my favorite mug coffee

GG: Wake up on music, drinking my favorite coffee with extra milk, enjoying the presents of my lovely birds, making breakfast, prepare for work, going to office, resolving the tasks and check for the deadlines, going to the studio or working from home. But many times, a day in my life can't be described, sometimes I feel that 24 h are not enough to make all the thing you want.

FS: Could you please share some pearls of wisdom for young designers? What are your suggestions to young, up and coming designers?
GG: I am a young designer, but I think I can answer that. Best advice is that you never need to give up on your dreams. Work not hard but smart. Be a good designer and change the world

FS: From your perspective, what would you say are some positives and negatives of being a designer?
GG: Weather change the style. People's behavior can change the process. Sometimes is difficult to satisfy everybody's expectation. Sometimes we work hard until we gain the great results. Sometimes you are wondering if this is the right path for you. But at the end of the day, you are happy, because you can create something good for the planet and people and they know it. Because you are the designer.
