This project was idealized and executed with extreme love, dedication, care and passion. It reflects the vision of a young designer who believes that communication is beyond what we see: it’s a blending of multiple sensations and experiences that mold our personality, our lives and the way we relate to each other. A young designer that believes in Design as an inspirational and a transformational tool for the excluding social context that we live in and as a key to modify and restructure the human beings and the relationship in society.
