Adam Wilmot/57/Vehicle Stylist

Nothing is better than to be able to hold a great design in your own hands.

Simon Brendle/52/Concept Artist

Nuances define life. Color defines our life without our being consciously aware of the fact.

Kathrin Briglmayr/23/Designer

Every pitch depends on the presentation. It can often help if customers are simply able to hold an idea in their hands.

Mario Donari/49/Industrial designer

I often find the tiny spark that ignites a compelling idea by ploughing through my collection of books.

Aileen Walsh/29/Concept Artist

As a child from the country, I wanted to escape into other worlds, and I always had my drawing tools in my luggage.

Miriam Dubois/23/Junior Art Director

I like to break with my accustomed way of seeing - sometimes it just has to be gaudy, I think.

Daniel Steiger/35/Photographer

Making the known and familiar look different - and vice versa - refreshes our view of the world.
