When engineering came to a standstill after the breakout of COVID-19, Daniel awakened his ‘long-buried’ passion for designing.

In the design world, there are countless changes that can happen in just a year, design software, plugins are created and updated to make the designer work easier and faster, you will need to stay updated about the news and new technologies that are coming

Learning never ends, always seek for advice from those who ‘went before you’ in the field. The design industry is a vast area so never stop learning especially from those with experience.
