Interview with the 2022 MUSE Design Awards Winner - Kuo Ching Ho

1Please give us a brief bio of yourself and your design background.

I have a strong passion for design, and I have been really concentrating on my design work and creative process. I strictly obey the principle of design, and by doing that, I fulfill a philosophical perfection. The art of design is what I am living for.

2What made you become/why did you choose to become a designer/artist?

I was born to be a designer, and the design art is in my blood.

3Tell us more about your business/company, job profile, and what you do.

I would say design and engineering (special engineering techniques) are our company’s roots. As of our company’s strengths, self-built projects, residential buildings, commercial space design, and brand image positioning design are all our company’s specializations.

4What does “design” mean to you?

I think design is like a big farm without limitations. If you keep working on it, you will produce fruitful results and witness different looks of this farm.

5What’s your favorite kind of design and why?

I love all types of design. There should be no limitation in my design world.

6To you, what makes a “good” design?

Love and communication.

7Describe your design style and its main characteristics.

I like all sorts and all styles of design. I believe that a designer should never be limited. The ultimate design goal will only be achieved by practicing the design principle, and there should be no boundaries for a designer.

8Tell us about your design process.

I like to be quiet and communicate with my soul. I will have a conversation with my own design in a very honest way.

9Congratulations! As the winner of the 2022 MUSE Design Awards, what does it mean to you and your company and team to receive this award distinction?

It is really a huge recognition, and it means a lot to me. But I should keep growing and not be satisfied with my current accomplishment. That is the only way that I can keep progressing.

10Can you explain a bit about the winning work you entered into the 2022 MUSE Design Awards, and why you chose to enter this project?

These design cases were all inspired by our clients, and we really spent much time learning our clients’ needs to make them happy with our work. We believe this initiative would win the recognition from the jury, so we chose to compete with these particular design cases.

11How has winning an Award developed your practice/career?

The winning will definitely strengthen our belief in what our company is doing, and I think our vision and value will undoubtedly bring us further.

12What are your top three (3) favorite things about our industry?

First is love. The second is communication. And the third is to dig deep into the clients’ needs.

13What makes your country specifically, unique in the design industry?

A designer’s heaven, and it is full of soft power!

14Where do you see the evolution of design industry going over the next 5-10 years?

The rising popularity of different social media platforms and short videos will definitely create more personalities and trendy brands, which will become the mainstream of the future world.

15If you were a student entering this industry or an aspiring MUSE Design Awards submitter, what advice would you give them?

Stay hungry, be willing to learn, and never look down on yourself. Leave your pride aside so you can thrive. It is the only way your artwork could break free.

16What resources would you recommend to someone who wants to improve their skills in the design industry?

My most significant resource is self-learning.

17Tell us something you have never told anyone else.

Stick to what you really believe in and just do it. Keep the faith!

18Who has inspired you in your life and why?

Life will guide you and inspire you in a recreational way.

19What is your key to success? Any parting words of wisdom?

Keep the faith and practice the principle of design that you genuinely believe in.
