About Ignas Survila : I took interest in design long ago, from my very early school years. Then I was just twelve years old and was a pupil at M.K.Čiurlionis Art School. After finishing the Art School, I entered Vilnius Art Academy and I studied industrial design. In the first year of my studies, I was already on practice in one of the leading advertising agencies Adell Taivas Ogilvy. There I learned about advertising business and graphical design. It was Ogilvy that flung doors for my further work. Afterwards I worked in other advertising agencies such as: Y&R Not Perfect, MILK, NEW, DADADA studio, BBDO Ukraine etc. After graduating bachelor studies from Vilnius Academy of Arts where I have created PIGEON kick scooter. Together with my friends and colleagues we have launched crowdfunding campaign on the Kickstarter, where PIGEON scooter has been successfully funded. Last year I found investors from Switzerland who helped me to realise the PIGEON scooter and to start mass production with it. Together with them we created a company called "Citybirds" that designs, develops and sells kick scooters for different city commuters- city birds. While making attempts not to stop at what has been achieved we do our best to show our clear position on the impact of ecology on human life. Therefore, we started developing four different ecological products, kick scooters for different target groups. This year I graduated from the postgraduate industrial design studies in Vilnius Academy of Arts. I started to appreciate kick scooters as a compact eco-vehicle more and more. Therefore I connected two activities of my own company and studies to reach even better and deeper result using this idea as my graduation project. It was absolutely amazing time, cause I finally realized what does it mean to create a real product, not only an idea, sketch, or CGI render but real scooter which would appear on a shop shelves whole around the world. The feeling is amazing. I have learned a lot new things from this amazing process, and now I understood that today design is not only a material you chose, shape or function you create, nevertheless it is super complex process which involves designer to become a part of marketing, physics, engineering, business, political or social movement, sustainability, advertising, environment etc. I am truly grateful and happy to be a part of this amazing ecosystem and create the better routine for all the people around the world.
