a space dedicated to let experiences take form.
2017 - ongoing
In 2017, I wanted to re-evaluate my personal drive to design. I’ve always had a desire to better everyday living through my work, but I wanted to form a tangible reason of why I design.
It all started with the term experience design, which I’ve come to realize that every designer tends to accept it in their respective discipline. I, too have claimed it as my own as well, but never thought twice about it until now.
What makes up an experience? Something happens, and we react. But what is that something, and who reacts? Is it a who, or a what? I’ve realized that it all leads to connections. Connections made between people, objects, and environments. (Hence the name, noun) I wanted an opportunity to study these connections and use them as narratives in my work. Which is why I started noun studio, where I will focus my personal projects to showcase my thinking and validation in design.
