Creativity can solve any problem

George Lois | Art director, Designer

Branding is what people say about you, when you are not in the room.

Learn to think big but still care about the small details!

Design is a way of changing the world and challenging the nature to be a better place for the human beings. A better world might have a different definition for different walks of lives: maybe a beautiful modern bridge or a UI for a pioneer application and each can make one’s world a better place to live in. In the recent years, my extensive professional work experience as a creative art director equipped me with collaborative skills and creative methods for ideation. It has opened up my eyes to the beauty and power of simplicity, which can be achieved by eliminating the unnecessary. I must admit that one of my greatest passions in life is to seek ideas and opportunities that broaden the horizon of my vision and thoughts while I welcome challenging the obstacles and absolutely confront the inner voices telling me “just mind yourself”. A designer, should solve the problems and find ways to fight against voices that keep telling him: just think about yourself. As per the legendary Persian poet and philosopher, Rumi said: “I came to you without “me”, so come to me without “you”.

I have learned to think big but still care about the small details.
