Winning an award is a great morale booster, and seeing other winners’ works is a good stimulus for me to broaden my horizons.
Reviewing previous award-winning entries has important reference value for what kind of work you should submit.
It is important to take an interest in everything in life. Favorite music, movies, books you read, or a comment from a friend can all be a catalyst for ideas. You should not ignore them.
Problems often arise when there is misalignment with the client’s thinking. In response to this, I believe that by first listening carefully to the client’s opinions, then clearly communicating my own opinions to the other party, and then exchanging opinions, we can find more and more proposals that are mutually satisfactory.
Winning an award helps against promoting your brand. In my case, I use social networking sites to inform a large number of people, potential clients and other designers about the award.
Winning an award further enhances one’s credibility. This can be used to help you network with others. I value this because each connection can become a potential client or business partner.
It has certainly increased. I think it is easier to make connections with other designers.
In my case, I would recommend it; C2A is a quality and prestigious design award, so I think it is worthwhile to participate.
I am in the habit of checking the news daily, so I clearly understand the latest technology, such as ChatGPT, after the fact. With some understanding, I will naturally find the answer to how to apply it.
In the future, I plan to work more with other designs first, gradually expanding my own brand, and when the time is right, I will establish my own design lab.
I am very fond of Bauhaus and Constructivist design of the 1920s, and this influence inspired me to create this series of works, and to enter C2A to show it to a large audience, while keeping in mind my previous philosophy of modeling and seeking new developments.
