Viewpoint: There are always new ideas on the way of design
"Thinking is the greatest pleasure of human" said playwright Brecht. This is also the favorite thing of Leo Hu. When we come into the office, we saw him sitting there, wrapped in the black jacket, and seems to be a quiet guy. But in the next communication we find that he was in fact quite a friendly person and was very eager to share with us all his rational thoughts and insights on design. After in-depth talking, we find he is a wise man. After graduated from school, he also worked in the famous design companies and now he found WJ Design. During the past ten years, each work designed by Leo Hu has never only been a product of the first appearance, but rather a long-term consideration.
