Harry Thaler

MA work

Designing takes me in all directions, but what is most important to me is keeping the simplicity and the soul in an object. My work plays between effortlessness and detail, so that the unnecessary is stripped away.

Keeping ideas fresh in your mind is what makes ideas work when translating them into real products. This philosophy is fundamental to my practice.
