My name is malco.
I’m a designer.
Creative designer and maker.
I am a design nerd who loves turning time-consuming tasks into profitable workflows.
I would describe myself as technical and meticulous.
My mantra is “Design with Purpose.”.
If something in the design doesn’t have a purpose,it probably shouldn’t be there.
As Dieter Rams said:
“Good design is as little as possible. Less, but better, because it concentrates on the essential aspects, and the products are not burdened with non-essentials. Back to purity, back to simplicity.”
What I love most being a designer is being able to create things which make me feel like I have superpowers. It’s awesome to be able to turn ideas into reality; wheteher it’s tactile or digital.
