Struck by a bolt of lightning, René runs at the speed of light in the name of good design. He still claims to have run from Hollywood to Koreatown in under an hour (don’t ask). Fascinated by the notion of community, René works diligently at strengthening the connection between designers, whether through the student groups or beyond. He also injects that fun and spirit in his work; in visual problem solving and clearer communication. He dreams of injecting more humanity into his art, which is plentiful with all those he has met along the way. Perhaps that raw energy comes from all those Ramones albums he loves listening to. Hey! Ho! Let’s Go!
