1. What made you want to become a designer in the first place?
SAMUEL: From a young age I was always taking things apart and putting them back together again to see how they worked. So i guess it was a natural progression for me to become a designer.
SEFIKA: I guess I have always been a designer. For as long as I can remember I have had a creative flair and a need to express my ideas. I don’t think one chooses to become a designer, as such its a career that chooses you.
