Every good innovative project needs a good idea and its generation requires a mix of natural creative attitude, structured working processes and deep capability to listen. Creativity is the basement of design thinking, not just the result of a process. Ideas come if you are able to combine both creativity and rational approach. But no process can substitute creativity.
I experimented this approach to design innovation in more than 20 years on business, during which I built an international experience in retail design industry, especially in banking, tlc and food one.
I’m truly involved into a great personal challenge. Let DINN! become the most innovative design environment ever. Not easy, but not impossible. Just need to believe and I do.
What I like most is to invent concepts and stories. Writing is my tool to deliver ideas. I always write my business and design concepts. I also like writing novels and some of them has been published, for my great pleasure.
