Hugo Félix García García
Postgraduate studies in United Kingdom, 2022
Designer and architect. I understand design as a methodology to solve our society's problems, centred on human needs and open to technology. The goal is to bring sustainable and innovative solutions that create an impact by improving our life and society. I am studying Innovation Design Engineering, intending to become a strategist designer with a holistic point of view. My main interest is in human behaviour, new materials and sustainability.
My background includes architecture, product design (furniture and lighting), digital manufacturing (3D printing, CNC, laser cutting) and education. I have worked in different design and architecture studios and companies, collaborating on projects of varying scales, from an airport to a lamp. Furthermore, I had an entrepreneurial project and my own studio, experiences that showed me the importance of business management for the success of any design project. In 2022, I worked as a full-time lecturer and part of the coordination team at ESNE, University School of design, innovation and technology (now UDIT). I found a passion for teaching design to others, and I hope to be able to do it in the future.
