Design Legends ("DL") had the distinct honour to interview legendary designer Heitor Lobo Campos ("HLC") 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.
HLC : I was born and raised in Brasilia, Brasil. I have a Bachelors degree in Industrial Design by the University of Brasilia. I wanted to be a designer ever since I was 14, it just seemed like the perfect area for me, specially due to its multidisciplinary and creative approach.
HLC : I wanted to make things, no matter what they were, I loved creating so I got into design with still not much idea of what exactly to make. With time I fell in love with Industrial Design, specially the physical part of it, sketching, prototyping, and finally seeing your project come to life.
HLC : I chose it.
HLC : Right now I don't have much of a favorite type of design, although I do seem to gravitate towards lighting design right now.
HLC : Work hard and take any opportunity you get, it was seeking out Gantri to publish a design of mine that I got a Gold Award at the A' Design Awards. Don't skip on a chance to get your work out in the market.
HLC : Time and experience.
HLC : Good design fulfills its requirements as a project while still managing to go beyond them.
HLC : Good design has value for everyone, the client, the user, and designers.
HLC : The secret is that there is none. Just hard work and a pinch of luck.
HLC : A musician I guess, although to be quite honest I'm not nearly a good at it as I am at design.
