Design Legends ("DL") had the distinct honour to interview legendary designer Marco Antonio Barba Sánchez ("MABS") 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.
MABS : Design has always been my passion. since I was a child I was very impressed by the creative and engineering professions. and the games that I chose always had to do with it. And every day my taste for it increases because there is always something new to learn, people to know, cultures, sciences, words, mechanisms, history and many other things. I am an industrial designer and I am always looking to innovate, create and learn.
MABS : because there is always something new to learn, people to know, cultures, sciences, words, mechanisms, history and many other things. I am an industrial designer and I am always looking to innovate, create and learn.
MABS : I chose it and I would do it a thousand times more.
MABS : I like to design products that make sense. that their concept is interesting and that they are not defined because I believe that innovation comes from the creation livertad based on a concept and an objective.
MABS : Do not be afraid to face projects. Everything is possible and in all the projects there will be an apprenticeship.
MABS : dare to innovate and create.
MABS : A good design has many points to consider but it is more important that the user and those around him see it as the best product.
MABS : Because good design makes your product a good product and a good product will always be bought and wanted.
MABS : I would design a car for pininfarina design. I know that is one of the best design firms of the world but if i could colaborate with them, I certainly do.
MABS : An automotive design from start to final.
MABS : Investigation
MABS : Dieter Rams, Ferrrucio lamborghini, Enzo ferrai, Pinin farina.
MABS : all designs that have a backedup design
MABS : Bermuda, because it solves a real necesity
MABS : knowing the world and culture makes you a better designer. because the design I think is based on people and planet.
MABS : I am one hundred percent sure that I would be an engineer.
MABS : I think that design is the perfect combination between aesthetics and functionality. In order to comply with certain characteristics that satisfy the needs of the client and the user.
MABS : My family, clients and mentors who have believed in me and have supported me in this way.
MABS : Discipline is the basis of any good professional. Besides, it's a skill that I have.
MABS : I think the main obstacle for a creative in my country is that people do not have the culture to develop their products or projects by the hand of a professional in design. therefore, it has been a great challenge for me to reach customers.
MABS : Demonstrating what they do, with creativity and quality.
MABS : Now I am working on several projects but I think one of the most important is the development of a new material in which I am working together with two other professionals in design and chemistry.
MABS : Have more and bigger projects, and be a reference of design in Mexico and the world.
MABS : That the projects carried out are of great impact and of the best quality.
MABS : By means of the design we can act positively in diverse sectors of the society to solve problems with objects or with the production of them. in the end always our products must have a good impact.
MABS : I am working on two projects that especially I find very interesting and it is the development of more products related to bermuda and the development of a new eco material for new projects that are on the way.
MABS : All the projects cause me a satisfaction, especially when they have a positive impact on the lives of many people or on the environment.
MABS : Stop making disposable and changing products continuously. Maybe I would bet on modular design and upgrades. so that all things can have a longer life in order for things to last so they have to last with important technological updates without having the disposable objects that now dominate the market.
MABS : towards the user experience with a positive impact on society, the environment, etc. In addition to new technologies and what is personalized or unique.
MABS : The time depends on the type of project to be developed and the development team involved. But due to our method of work and development we can achieve shorter times thanks to collaborations with professionals
MABS : I begin by knowing what exactly the client is looking for or what is the problem to solve. so that it can investigate and define what the client really needs.
MABS : As a designer and as a person, is that everything you do, do it well. And with good I mean many things, like in development, in execution, in its impact, in its use, in everything.
MABS : I think a bit of both. because aesthetic tendencies are imposed by design but development trends, social, economic, ecological, etc. they are the ones that influence the design.
MABS : Technology plays a very important role in the development of the project, in its production and in the project as a product. As a designer you always have to be aware of everything new that exists and what is to come to always achieve the best.
MABS : Mainly modeling and rendering software
MABS : The color, materials and the environment are very important elements in the design because if they do not match the product will not be very good and if these together do not match the profile of the user or client because this product will not even be sold.
MABS : I would like people understand my design without asking and from that any question will be very good.
MABS : I analyze why it is a good design and how it was achieved that result to learn from that.
MABS : Anyone who complements me is a great collaboration because of those collaborations I have learned a lot and I have achieved great results. I firmly believe in it.
MABS : All the people when I know them a little more leave a mark on me and I learn a lot from them. I think that all those who have taught me something have infused my way of thinking and creating.
MABS : All science books have influenced me a lot.
MABS : working, studying and being curious.
MABS : Leonardo da Vinci
MABS : I feel very proud to fulfill a goal of life more and that I am doing well. Well it's not hard because it's a good reputation
MABS : Red, Nature places, All the food (I'm food lover), Summer, Pininfarina design
MABS : It is always amazing to talk with people and know about their cultures and from there I realized that people need to be listened to and when you understand who they are, people are amazing with you. It happened to me a lot with the fishermen from the Yucatan region who are incredibly generous.
MABS : That the people I work with are happy and that the clients recognize my work and are happy with it.
MABS : The people who knew me always told me.
MABS : I have faith that the world will be a better place and that the human will have greater awareness of everything.
