[col3] Work

As a designer he is particulary interested in forms. Once a form is found, he enlarges or repeats it. Then he concentrates on using the possibilities of that form as a basis to develop a design.
It’s important to work with both shapes and colour. The first gives dimension to the design while the second provides warmth. [/col3]
