ABOUT

 

Active Designer. Constant Learner.

 

Hello!
I am Guillermo Meza, an Industrial Designer born and raised in Mexico City; one of the most vibrant cities in the world.

 

Here I have learned that products can acquire social complexity when they relate to people and to their contexts; therefore DESIGN has a responsibility beyond correct function or aesthetics.

 

I believe objects can become the vehicle to tell an "underdog's" story, help the ones in need, promote social values or denounce bad practices.

 

I love what I do and I love challenges: Design will not save the world, but it is a good place to start.
