Nicolai Czumaj-Bront believes that design is life. Design is the beauty that we see and the passion that we feel. It tells meaningful stories, shows that we care, and tries to inspire. Design asks us to challenge ideas and to solve problems thoughtfully. Design is not about following trends but creating them, “Design is everything.”
