Rico Lins interview for the book LUST

LUST – A Traveling Art Journal of Graphic Designers is a project created by the new yorker James Victore for the Rockport Publications to which he invited a number of colleagues. We all dream of high-paying, high-profile jobs and crave for more creativity in our work. “Lust” is a peek into what is possible when designers are allowed to pursue this dream. Rico Lins is Brazilian designer who present in this work. Follow the short interview in which the designer talks about his project:

Inspirations for this project?
My love in traveling, in building connections and in getting in touch with things i’m not familiar with.

How does passion play a part in your work?
When i am doing something i love i am totally on it. In most projects i jump into i’m driven by challenge, curiosity, fantasy, seduction and an intense exchange.3.

Do you love what you do?
I love what i do and wish i would only do what i love

Are you a dreamer?
Without dreams it would be a nightmare!

How big a role do found objects play in you work/inspiration?
When i do a collage they what i found is physically essential in all levels. FOR All sorts of projects and in a more abstract way all gathered fragments of my personal experience and repertoire, what i catch from everyday life and from peoples attitudes are among my most powerful creative sources.
