My name is Andres Felipe Alvarez Barbosa, I was born in Bogotá, but had the chance to live several years in the United States and England. Living and visiting different countries opened my eyes to different ways of life and modes of transport. I dreamt of becoming an Aerospace Engineer and designing planes and race cars but found my true passion for transportation design.
After finishing my Industrial Design degree in Bogota, I came to ArtCenter knowing my impact could be larger. By deeply understanding cultural differences, appreciating what others consider crazy or unorthodox, I use these unique approaches and find strategies that resonate within a community. As a designer, I have always taken the path less traveled. I embrace disorder and I thrive in it to find solutions.
