Ruka Kameda

Hello, I am a designer whose core value is in empathy. 

I started to appreciate the people and products relationship after spending several years in Germany. I gained curiosity about how people associate and create memories with the products. Spending 3 years in the Product Design course at The Glasgow School of Art, I gained a keen interest in how our sensation stimulus could evoke memories and how designers can create a rich experience in different applications digitally and physically. 

 

My design practice often involves the topics of sustainability from a cultural perspective: rituals, traditions, interactions between people and the relationship with these with technology and efficiency based lifestyle.

 

 To further my understanding and to explore my creativity, I have been experimenting with a variety of design-related fields. I enjoy absorbing and discovering rituals that exist in people's lifestyle, which helps me to establish my perspective in my creative practice.
