My design approach is “When Child = Creativity and Adult = Rationality…
With Creativity + Rationality, we get ChilDult.”

Likewise, my design rationale is "We have gone as far as mankind has engineered. It is time that design should be recognized as an essential instrument in our lives; to make life more livable..."
