Throughout his professional career, Clabots has worked as a designer, a creative director, a university professor, and as a serial entrepreneur, having started and run a series of design-related businesses. At the core of his thought process are three questions: Why? How? and What?
Why: Clabots believes that the impetus behind creating anything should be rooted in a clear understanding of why it is new, needed, and relevant. By observing and questioning changes in markets, manufacturing processes, society, and the environment, we can identify new design opportunities.
How: Clabots believes we can open the doors for innovation simply reframing the questions we ask about the world. By questioning how paradigms shift, we are able to identify white-spaces for new products, businesses, and services that can better our businesses and our lives.
What: Once we have answered the first two questions, we can clearly understand what the new offering needs to be.
With his years of execution and industry know-how, Clabots is able to deftly bring these offerings to life. His work is not driven by his own taste or intuition; rather, it is driven by a systematic understanding of how to identify opportunity and capitalize on it.
Thanks for taking the time to visit this site and get to know me a little better. I am alway interested in new opportunities and projects, and I truly love to discuss design. Getting to know new people is one of the true pleasures of this industry. If you think we have some common interest, please don't hesitate to write. I look forward to hearing from you.
