. Creative mind and truly genuine curiosity towards several fields of art
. Strong attention to every detail without loosing the overall scheme
. Ability to navigate across various scales, from urban planning to product design
. Exhibited passion and full dedication to reach the highest standard
. Proven capacity to face challenging situations and work under pressure 
. Willing to work in team and collaborate with external professionals
