Q and I started working together 7 years ago at the design consulting agency, Insync Design. Q is a talented industrial designer who has a passion for solving problems that are UX first while having an aesthetic that makes you love the product. His experience in manufacturing processes, and materials and working in cross-functional teams brings a unique skill set to a team that benefits the process of product development.
"As Q's professor, I can say for certain that when my class may have been lost at times, they always looked to Q to see how he was "Getting It". This gave the others the courage to pursue their own ideas. Q's a real leader with talents beyond his years. A gifted man, a real treasure, kind, inquisitive, and simply a pleasure to work with. A classroom full of Qs would be a real high point in my career! ”
”....I have been a designer and art director in New York since 1964 and an instructor at Pratt and SVA since 1967. he always has a wonderful solution to a project, which results not only from his strong, intelligent student, I can honestly say that Q is one of about a dozen of the best student designers I have ever worked with. Not only is he extremely talented and creative but incredibly hardworking and intelligent as well. As a concept, but also from the professional manner in which he takes instruction and/or suggestions.
He ranks on the same high level of some of the best employee designers I ever worked with.”
