Who am I

WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A BILLBOARD PAINTER AND AN ARTIST?

 

A question asked by my art teacher when I was a child.

 Creativity was my answer.

I think this also holds true for the value between science and design. Furthermore, I believe the knowledge of science I have learned not only can solve the engineering issues, but also can be a powerful tool to design a creative future.
