Driven by design with a passion for innovation
My name is Ásdís Björnsson and I am an industrial design graduate from the Art Institutes Orange County class of 2017I was born in Denmark but my family is from Iceland. I grew up moving from country to country. The education system was very difficult to navigate but one thing that never changed was my passion for art and creativity. Since before I can remember I have always enjoyed working with my hands, and creating new things. The world is rapidly changing and new art forms emerging. I've always been so inspired by the creativity of new designs and advancements we see in today's society. From this experience I have a very clear philosophy about design in that form and function may never compromise for the user. Design to me, is when a physical object merges with a vivid user experience. As a designer, I strive to bring joy to people’s lives through a minimalistic product approach. Why? Because we live in times where materials, technology, and manufacturing methods are rapidly evolving, and thus capable of bringing complex products to the market. I hope to be one of the creative minds that will shape our future.
