1. Jongho LEE,
Can you please tell us about you?
I think I always loved making new things.
2. What is your role at
SAMSUNG Art & Design Institute?
I believe that product / space should be designed first to reflect the customers’ lifestyles and emotional status and then technologies follows to support the customers’ experiences.
3. How did you discover your passion for Design? How it all started?
I love making new things.
I think designers are the one who should be able to utilise new technology to make something unique. This is my passion for design.
I would love to create something unique with the help of new technology.
I took the online sketching course from this year and taking the course was a definitely smart choice in my case.
I feel confident about making new things now.
4. What makes you excited about design?
5. Why design is so important in Korea?
It is changing now.
Design in Korea is far more on a mass_customization era.
6. How important are
sketching skills for designers ?
Sketching should be the necessary skills for any designers.
Sometimes, students wonder if the computer modeller can replace the sketching. However, based on my personal experience, sketching is a type of human skills that can be practised and improved.
Through the sketching practice, parts of your visionary brain can be activated, trained and switched on. And by developing a habit of sketching a day, you will be motivated to create something way creative.
7. What are the qualities you are looking for in a student to become a great designer ?
Students have to be a great storyteller.
8 Do you think anyone
can learn how to sketch?
Designers communicate their initial concepts and ideas through sketches.
9. If you had One advice to give to a an aspiring designer who don’t dare to pursue his dream to become a designer.
What would you tell him ?
The design is a great job, always fulfilling.
As technologies (such as AI) got mature, people will spend more time on creating something, leaving management job to AI.
So, I think it is getting a great time to be a designer ever than before.
Tell your stories with sketching, express your thoughts and feelings with sketches, and make something new for the mankind.
These are the designers’ life.
It will be fun and fulfilling than ever before.
Thank you Jonhgo LEE
for your precious and inspiring insights!
If you aspire to become a designer,
I hope his journey resonnate in your heart.
I hope it shows you how being a designer is a beautiful journey
following the goal of making a better world.
Jongho’s insider view reminds me how as a designer you have a decisive role
on our environment and excitement in our lives.
I like to think we are like the scenarist of life.
Creativity offers meaningful experiences to people.
I also feel grateful for all the work made by the designers around the world who create all the objects that surround us (Phone, computer, tables, jewelries, pens, water bottles, drones, …) who plan and create the future.
Like how Jongho LEE mentionned,
it’s amazing with the great support of innovation and technology.
