I see myself as not a designer but a problem solver. This spring, I will graduate from Savannah College of Art and Design with a B.F.A. in Furniture Design and a minor in Exhibition Deign. I tend to design and create in a manner completely centered around my client or consumer. Because of this, I find beauty in functionality. I am heavily inspired by my environment and life experiecnes. When it comes to creating, I will always have a special connection to objects handmade and excersice this by making journals, jewelry, and crocheted items in my spare time. Above all, I thrive on trying new things, learning, and melding my creative fields.
Will believes that if a designer is reminded of what is important, that beauty will follow function, good design will emerge naturally from the necessities of life. Will believes that simplicity is the most complicated state to achieve, but also the state most worth attaining. Will is an active furniture design student at Savannah College of Art and Design, expected to graduate summer 2013.
Cristiana Formica is a senior in the Furniture Design program at Savannah College of Art and Design. Her experiences at the college led to successful work for Davis furniture and Impact Consulting Services. She specializes in conveying the relevancy of her research in design concepts making them to be reliably insightful and consistently energizing. Cristiana is fueled by her earlier interests in physical sciences and mathematics and takes comfort that they aid her methodology in design. You may otherwise find her energy focused on her interests in baking, dancing, and reading. Cristiana completes her degree in the spring of two thousand thirteen and is excited for the design opportunities to come.
Prior to attending SCAD, Paul D’Errico served as Head Instructor and Director of Education at SAE Institute in Miami, FL. It was here that Paul saw success as an educator, manager, article writer, musician, and audio engineer for both live sound and studio albums. He recorded songs and albums with KRS-One, Fusik, Ketchy Shuby, and a variety of local and regional acts. He was published in TapeOp magazine for an article on sound and its impact on the brain. And when Paul wasn’t working on his own music, he taught himself the art of fine woodworking.
Moonlighting as a freelance woodworker, Paul found his obsession for furniture was more than just a hobby. Transitioning away from a life in music, Mr. D’Errico chose to attend SCAD to investigate new materials beyond wood, refine his own design skills and style, and learn more about the process of conceptualizing and manufacturing furniture. With a design ethos rooted in classic, timeless form and mid century gestures, Paul continues to push the boundary of clean, minimal lines that liven up any space. He prefers to inject a bit of whimsy and playfulness into his pieces while still respecting the integrity of the end user. Whether its working on furniture, making sketchbooks, or scrounging “how-to” videos, Paul is an avid maker who can’t let a day go by without crafting something new.
