Design Mentor: The Key of Cook County

1. What inspired you to become a mentor for the Flag 2021 competition?
I wanted to help the young designers realize their vision and show them ways to push their work even further. 

2. Through this experience what did you learn from your student, and what did you hope to impart upon your student?
I learned how to look at things through the eyes of someone younger, and was inspired on how fast they interpret the world, process it and articulate it. It’s cool to see. 

3. Tell us about a favorite memory you have working with your student(s).
I just enjoyed seeing the work evolve, the experiments, iterations and questions.
