About Jackie Lai : I have been a design entrepreneur for the last decade and for every single day, I am thinking how design can help me change the way I do business and to create an impact for my personal development – which is to be open to learning and trying new things out. I have been working in teams where most of the time I am the only designer. It is not easy but I learned to deal with others’ perspectives. I have to communicate my ideas more simply and to see much more clearly what I can uniquely contribute as a designer. I am glad I have evolved to become a mentor to many designers whom I groomed and started their own practice.
STATEMENT OF ART:
Design for me is about adding value to life. Good design makes you think: why did I not think of that? There is just too much poor designs out there - for me, to add the little details here and there in life by redesigning helps reduces stress and enables me to be more intuitive while absorbing rules and logic. Design Thinking and Innovation is essential now. Design is an equal partner with many enterprises including technology, business, urban planning, science, medicine and education. Design is collaborative.
