Stephen Carr » My resumé

Objective

I like to let ideas evolve through interaction and play. I spend much of my time thinking, drawing and stumbling across beauty. I want to work in an environment where conceptualising is part of everyday work. I believe that form follows function and functionality is king, I am forever in pursuit of beauty through function and interaction.
