Miquel Padres

Discover the interview of Miquel Padres from Appart_ in Bangkok, Thailand.

How did you become designer ?

One becomes a designer when he or she grows up with imagination and curiosity that allows you to become creative and discover the world. Creativity is generally an inherent talent. It can be educated or fostered but generally if you are a creative person you become aware of it at early stages and decide to follow that career path.

How would you define your vision of design, your style ?

At Appart_ we are not big fans of the segmentation of design as per styles. Obviously, throughout history, there are different art and design movements such as Baroque, Neo-classicism, Bauhaus, etc. These movements are generally defined by lines of though that happens in a moment in time and can only be explained in the context of the current moment and the past.

Our approach is that design revolves around the needs of those experiencing a problem. Therefore we create comprehensive strategies and ideas that provide user-centric solutions.

For the future, what are your professional projects ?

We are currently involved in several brand creation projects including a new meditation accessories brand for the US market or a sustainable activewear brand for the Thai market. We love working with start-up businesses because this gives us the chance to create and grow with them. It is a similar experience of helping to give birth and raise a child.

What do you like the most in your job ?

Working in a design consultancy is extremely fulfilling because we get to work with brands from different industries and markets. We are constantly learning new things and there is also a strong need to reinvent oneself and create innovation.
