Discover the interview of Marvin Castillo, located in Escazú, Costa Rica
How did you become designer ?
I was studying industrial engineering. At the time, I used to draw a lot in class and my classmates always asked if I was interested in design, which is a thing people always used to tell me as a kid. After four months of studying engineering and after creating the branding for a fake company for a university assignment in business class, I decided to go to design school and studied Advertising Design.
How would you define your vision of design, your style ?
I would describe it as “focused”. Some time ago, I used to describe it as minimal, but honestly, there’s many of my pieces that aren’t minimal. The style is sober, but there’s always major focus on the thing I’m trying to communicate and I try to portray it as pretty as possible.
For the future, what are your professional projects ?
I would love to work on more branding and creative advertising. I’m currently participating in Volcanes Festival and Cannes Young Lions, and I’m really proud of the creative work I did to get in both of them. The process of making the pieces we sent for those festivals was a blast.
What do you like the most in your job ?
Getting into a very creative project where I can enjoy the phase of pre-production, production and post-production. Throwing ideas to solve a problem is a very exciting process and watching how it starts to shape up is even better.
