Interview with Andy Tan

Could you please tell us more about your art and design background? What made you become an artist/designer? Have you always wanted to be a designer?
I were born in a design background family. During my early stage in life, I had notice that education is never been easy for me as a low grade student in school. When it comes to Art and Design, i were considered by others that i am gifted in it. That is when I chosen this path at the age of 15, to carry on this dream to become a successful designer.
Can you tell us more about your company / design studio?
This company does not come easy at first. Funding the set up and exposing my talent to public has never been simple. After years of practiced in a small design firm, I decided to start up myself and ready to gain more public exposure. This company will focus a lot on concept and innovation.
What is "design" for you?
Design is everything and anything in our daily life. "Design is not what we can create in modern era, it is something we improvised better from the last".
What is your most favorite design, could you please tell more about it?
Philippe Starck works. His invention and ideas inspire many people in the world includes me.
What makes a design successful?
When the finished work satisfy the client. Seeing their joy on thier face when they move into the space.
How do you think the "design field" is evolving? What is the future of design?
The future is to see the past. Never forget and take things for granted.
Where does the design inspiration for your works come from? How do you feed your creativity? What are your sources of inspirations?
I always seek inspiration from the every simple things in life. Always ask a thousand questions on how to improvise better from the last concept, it helps to brainstorm my creativity.
How would you describe your design style? What made you explore more this style and what are the main characteristics of your style? What's your approach to design?
My design style mainly daring and wild. I will like to carry this ideas because it just give myself the originality. create something out from nothing. Most of the idea and concept has to be "Do-It-yourself".
Where do you live? Do you feel the cultural heritage of your country affects your designs? What are the pros and cons during designing as a result of living in your country?
Singapore. The heritage does affect my creation. I been there long enough to see the changes from past to modern. The cons is when you create something relates to the past, they will feel that you are outdated and not improving like others. The pros is that when you create something that nobody wants to create, you become special and unique.
What are your suggestions to companies for working with a designer? How can companies select a good designer?
A good designer does not comes easy. Do not judge till you given a chance to whom it might concern. Early judgement will "kills" a potential good designer.
From your perspective, what would you say are some positives and negatives of being a designer?
Positive: you will gain sense of achievement and satisfaction. Negative: you will give up a lot of your personal time.
