Jaime Hayon is usually one of the first names out of my mouth! If the student/intern has a blank look on their face because this name is not familiar to them, I wonder to myself how sad it must be to live in a world of design and not have Jaime in your life...so sad! Yes, Jaime Hayon rules!Sometimes when speaking to students or interns, I will mention some of the designers I love.
We use his products constantly in our projects. I loved reading that he started out as a skateboarder and graffiti artist. Of course he did! That is why he is so utterly cool! He has his own style and his own mark he stamps on everything he does. I am and will continue to be completely fascinated by this man. So if you by some strange chance don't know this designer, go straight to his website and read all about him.
As eye candy I will include one of his notebook sketches--freaking genius!
