Today’s interview is with the very talented José, a designer who is lucky enough to live in one of the most beautiful cities in the world, Sydney. I wanted to feature José for several reasons, but largely because he is such an incredibly creative and interesting person – and he channels that creative energy into the things he loves, like decor, art and fashion. José also has a unique perspective on using the many beautiful, special items he owns everyday, for everyday things (like eating KFC wings, clearly a man after my own heart). You’ll see this philosophy and his overall aesthetic in the photos and interview to come – enjoy meeting José!
Who are you? What do you do, and where do you live?
I’m still figuring out that first bit, but essentially I think I’m a hopeless aesthete! I’m a graphic designer by trade, and as a creative I tend to wear many hats, one being creative direction, another creative copy writing, and a smaller hat runs around in search of screen wipes. I like most of my hats. I also do some furniture and object design on the side, for the time being just for myself, tinkering in the combined laboratory that are my sketchbooks, dads garage, hardware stores, cabinetmakers and metal fabricators. I’m really just getting my bearings and having fun with physical design at the moment. And I live in Sydney.
