The GE Monogram Experience Center brings designers to Louisville, Kentucky, for three-day experiences to learn about Monogram, the design process, our appliances – and even cook with them! We interviewed each designer to learn a little more about their background and design experiences.
Today’s profile highlights Adrian Galvan from San Antonio, Texas.
SRFD: How did you become interested in design?
Adrian: My mom raised us to be creative out of necessity, we had to work with what we had. Growing up with a creative like her, there was always room to create something, anything! If it was a candy jar that was decoupaged with magazine cutouts, or making houses with craft sticks, there was always room to create. Bob Ross and Lynette Jennings were always on, and some sort of glue or paintbrush was always around too! I knew I was destined to create!
SRFD: Tell us about a recent project you really enjoyed.
Adrian: I’ve recently enjoyed the challenge of creating a focal wall in a commercial space. The space needed something that was visible from all spaces, so I mounted multi-size, hand blown glass plates to reflect light, and add color to the space. The result was a “wow” that was a huge impact, and a focal point!
SRFD: A trend you’re over?
Adrian: Chevron! Can we all move on please?
SRFD: A trend you’re excited about?
Adrian: The color combos of Black and Gold, love the contrast and reminds me of extreme High Fashion! So hot!
SRFD: What did you learn in Louisville?
Adrian: That GE Monogram really and truly is the best line there is out there! Love the fact that it’s made in the USA, and very impressed with the market research done to make these products stand out, and be adaptable to a mass audience. I heart the Advantium, it’s my first appliance crush!
