Design Legends ("DL") had the distinct honour to interview legendary designer Jenifer Blanco Monzón ("JBM") for their original perspective and innovative approach to design as well as their creative lifestyle, we are very pleased to share our interview with our distinguished readers.
JBM : I studied graphic design in Caracas, Venezuela where I am from and then came to Argentina to study Art Direction. I really love the botch of them but I prefer Art Direction because it is more complete. You have to know about design, and also movies, photography, history, and a lot more ir order to be more confident and have better results.
JBM : Because I could not picture myself doing anything else. Design makes me happy and I think everyone should do what makes them happy!
JBM : I love to make things with my hands, that is why I love set design and crafting. I wish I can make more of that.
JBM : Because design surround us everyday everywhere. We see design from a box of cereals, to a ballot. So for people to understand better what they are reading and what they want to get, design has to be involve.
JBM : I would love to design for Wes Anderson and work with him in one of his movies!
JBM : I am wishing to be involved in the art direction and set design of a big movie. That would be a dream come true!
JBM : Make work that makes you happy!
JBM : Jessica Walsh. Stefan Sagmeister. Paula Scher. Michael Beirut.
JBM : I love Jessica Walsh's design because it is disruptive, super creative and unique. She uses bright colores that pop and she is always overcoming. I love her work!
JBM : Researching a lot, reading, watching movies, and never stop creating. You can never be too creative! And practices makes perfect (although I don't think perfect even exists).
JBM : I think I would be an architect or a yoga teacher!
JBM : More and better projects!
JBM : I want to help people with my designs and I want to help younger designers too in the future! I would love to have my own physical studio (like a real place) and be a community where designers go and create all the time.
JBM : Make work into play, and play into work!
JBM : I love technology but I don't only rely on it because I love starting from analog and then go to digital if its necessary.
JBM : I don't feel famous at all. I just feel better accomplishing something new and getting to share my work with others.
JBM : Turquoise. The beach. Sushi. Spring. A brush. Apple.
JBM : when I got out of school I studied engineering for a year. I didn't feel like I belonged there, so I wrote a letter to my parent saying that I wasn't happy and that I wanted to change to graphic design. Luckily I have the best parents and they wanted the best for me. So I changed and loved everything about studying design!!
JBM : I love watching Ted talks and inspirational videos because others success makes me want to accomplish things and become not only a better designer but also a better person.
JBM : Not at all. My parents are engineers and I always liked to paint and draw but never saw myself as a designer growing up. But now that I am a designer I don't picture myself doing anything else!
