Julia, 32: Julia works as an architect in Amsterdam. As a child, she was interested in so many subjects she had a hard time deciding on her profession. But being an architect lets her use her whole brain, both concepting new approaches and working out new approaches to building them. She reads and travels widely and has a restless mind.
Rodalfo, 27: Rodalfo loves a good bet, and wins more of them than he loses. He’s not a pessimist. He’s just a keen observer and few details are lost on him. He works as a mechanical engineer in Sao Paolo, and was trained to look for how things might fail. He can take anything apart, and likes to hack products so they work better.
Wini, 23: Wini is an aspiring art director and graphic designer living in Shanghai. She often enters design competitions and was a finalist in an international student advertising design contest. She sketches relentlessly on her iPad, and collects design inspiration from around the world.
Ryan, 32: Ryan is the pied piper in his group of friends in Chicago. He gets people together and knows, it seems, pretty much everybody. No one can quite figure out how he has the time to keep up on the newest music, food, electronics or undiscovered travel destinations. But Ryan can always tell you what’s cool to buy and where to get it.
