Pedro Arturo

México, 1990

Mexican Industrial Designer understanding the world, its moment and context through Design. My corporate experience has improved my work structure, refined my attention to detail and increased pragmatism in decision making. While 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 realms adapting my own mind-set and process to what the project requires.

Currently studying the renowned Master of Arts in Transportation Design program at the Pforzheim University of Applied Sciences’ School of Design, I constantly find myself evolving my own way of using design as an excuse and a medium to touch emotional fibers in the spectator, wake curiosity and awe in the user, and to challenge the industry by being empathetic with the market and the feasibility of things.

Available for TRANSPORTATION DESIGN INTERNSHIP opportunities (Interior, Advanced, Strategy or Exterior) in the EU to start next March-April 2020.
