Europe and Mexico • 1/2002 - 1/2003
I took this year off to travel throughout Europe (Belgium, France, Spain, Italy, Germany, Netherlands) and various parts of Mexico. During this year, I didn’t formally work in advertising or design, but my visual culture and my ability to observe grew exponentially. I also learned more about human behavior and insights than at any other time. Travel will do that to you.
