Readings

Readings

I decided to add "Readings" section because sometimes wannabe designers ask where my knowledge comes from. While most of it comes from experience and  white nights, reading remains an important part of the self-teaching process. So, here it is, a selection of readings I’ve done in the past years. Never stop learning, questioning, debating, wondering and, of course, create something meaningful once in a while.
