Golden Glassberry 2015

The Glassberries Design Awards was perhaps one of the best things that ever happened to me in life. I participated in the contest with the aim of challenging myself and doing something I had never done before; but never, in any circumstance, did I imagine that I could become a finalist, let alone one of the victors.

The Glassberries have me the opportunity to travel, to meet another country, another city and several fellow designers who share the same taste I have for design and the same ambition to take this passion as a career.

This job has been excellent for seeing and understanding the industrial process of a product from conception to production, as well for learning how to work as a team, how to respond to all challenges in the best possible way and last but not least important, to grow not only professionally but also as a person.
