You should select me because

I believe that there will be several other applicants with incredible works and talents applying for this edition. I wouldn't say that I'm the best, yet, but rather say that I'm truly eager to learn from the professionals, sharpen my skills and improve my stand as a designer through this programme.For me, the most important skill in creative work, is not how well you use the computing programme, but how well you can initiate the concept for each project profoundly and thoughtful in every details, as well as how strong-willed you are to experiment and make mistakes – the creative mind is the foundation, the programme is a tool.That is the design philosophy that I've been followed and I believe I have what it take to do just that .I feel like this is the opportunity that I've been waiting for and I believe I'm ready.Thank you for your consideration.

1. Why are you interested in wgi?

As it has been around 2 years since I graduated and I've been working as a freelance designer since then, I feel like I'm slowly selecting and deselecting what I can and can't as a designer and things started to go on a repeating loop. Then I heard about WGI and I truly intrigued by the whole idea of experimenting on a new internship model and that made me curious about how it would be like to go on such a journey, to join such an incredible opportunity, to see the world and to design at the same time,so I took a chance and apply for this edition.

2. What are you looking to gain from an experience such as WGI?

* A practical working experience on building a project from the initial stage to the outcome, professionally. * A better perspective of global creative industry and working environment and an opportunity to learn, exchange opinions, and be advised from the professionals. * A chance to exchange thoughts and inspirations with other interns/professional designers from different cultural background and working environment. * An opportunity to get to work as part of design projects by inspiring design studios. * Answers to questions and curiosities.

3. What would be your goals after completing WGI if you were selected?

The goal that I have in mind at the moment is not something big. I would say that I simply wish to learn more about myself as a designer, unlock my potential, and widen my perspective on the global creative industry – to become a better designer. Also, I hope to become a designer who could pass on useful experiences gathered during WGI to my fellow designers after completing it, since I believe that getting selected means we would get a glimpse into how real industry works and how professionals do their projects, therefore, by sharing the whole experience we could keep a nice design community rolling.

4. How did you hear about wgi?

I heard it from a friend who is now working as a freelance designer as well.

5. Share an example of a time you were most motivated and a time you were most demotivated.

Motivated: I am most motivated when I work on something and then I start to be curious about the possibilities, then I try to find answers for that by exploring digitally and physically (with a cup of coffee beside me.) Demotivated: Not having enough sleep or having to strictly obey the decisions that are made only by one individual.

6. In your opinion, what creates a great culture at a company?

* Culture that constructive ideas and opinions from everyone matter. Decisions are formulated together by the team. * Culture that is not afraid to make mistakes and learn from them. * Culture that promotes collaboration/making everyday a learning day.

7. What brands and companies do you admire and why?

I admire Gentle Monster as a brand, not because of the products, but the experience that each flagship store builds for the audience. I think it is daring to create large-scaled in-store installations specifically for each of its locations in the age where people turn to the online shopping platform rather than go to the actual shop. I also admire Apartamento Magazine so much for how honest their documentation of interior is. Also the design and the writting of their publications always make a good read.

8. What do you do to stay sharp and improve your craft?

I try to formulate self-initiated projects as much as possible to sharpen my skill, this applies to both digital work and hands-on projects. I also ask for and exchange useful tips and ideas with our works whenever we meet. Always be ready for advises.

9. What’s your favorite quote?

“Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish.” – Steve Jobs
