Bundit Kanisthakhon

The principle that I live by as a teacher and as a designer is to always practice what I preach. Everything that I share with the students and my clients, I have experienced it myself and have learned from it. Rather than instructing students to do exactly what I say or what I want them to learn, I prefer to set up an environment for them to learn through explorations and self-discovery. I consider myself as a bridge for students to cross back and forth between theory and practice, brain and hands, process and result.
