Andrew Castro


Every product begins with an idea. These ideas are like dots on a map. We connect the dots to find the right path to lead us to a successful product.

I believe that making connections through life experiences, research and ideation is a critical part of the design process. My curiosity in design began while growing up in my family’s manufacturing business, where I gained an insider’s perspective on the various paths an idea takes to develop into a product. As a creative, I am influence by various hobbies such as music, extreme sports, and traveling. Creating music with other musicians has taught me the value of team work. One must work together in order to create a cohesive rhythm. My active life style has showed me the importance of ergonomics and pushing design functionality to its limit. Through my travels, I witnessed how everyday products can impact the world differently. As a student at Art Center College of Design, my perspective on design and life was influenced by the concept of “Design for Sustainability.” Through research, I became conscious of how much our products as designers impact our society and everyday lives. As one path comes to an end, another one begins.

As a designer, I make connections with life experiences, education and skills with consumer needs in order to create a product that impacts people’s lives.
