Pedro Arturo

Irapuato, Guanajuato, México, 1990

Understanding the world, its moment and context through Design. Corporate world has improved my work structure, refined my attention to detail and increased pragmatism in decision making. In the other side, personal projects and interesting collaborations satisfy my need for free creative development and exploration while giving me the opportunity to lead teams, manage and execute projects in different Design areas adapting my own mind-set to what is required.

I constantly find myself evolving my own way of using Design as an excuse and a medium to touch emotional fibers in the expectator, wake curiosity and awe in the user, and to challenge the Industry by being empathetic with the market and the feasibility of things.

Currently collaborating in the home appliances industry, curious and full with questions, I have learned by exposing myself to experiences at my reach, through working with highly skilled professionals building on each other’s ideas, by being transparent and straight forward.
