Andrew Kusuma

3D_Andrew KusumaI'm from Indonesia. I was graduated with Bachelor's Degree in Industrial Design on 2005 from the Institut Teknologi Bandung, Indonesia. After becoming an Assistant Lecturer, I continued to expand my knowledge by enrolling onto a Jewelry Design Course at IED Milan, Italy and then went on to become a freelance 3D visualiser. In 2009 I've decided to pursue my study by taking the MA 3D Deisgn course at School of Design Northumbria University in Newcastle. Here I developed a broad experience which has helped me get to where I am today. 

What are you doing now?

I'm currently working in Architectural Consultancy as Product Design and Senior 3D visualiser. I'm responsible for maintaining the quality of the Visualisation in the office and at the same time working on the Product Design Project. Our office mainly deals with public furniture as  we mainly work on retail and commercial projects.

How did studying at Northumbria help you achieve your career goals / give your career an edge?

For sure, Northumbria helped me in building my confidence and my communication skills, all of which are now very useful in developing my career.

What was the best thing about your course?

We were engaged in a lot of team projects, which, I think, is one of the best experience I had on the course.

Who inspired you the most, and why?

Everyday people around me are my inspiration, especially whenI noticethe different ways they interact with objects.

What did you enjoy most about your time at Northumbria University?

I really enjoyed the time when we  were preparing for our REVEAL exhibition.

What advice would you give somebody who is thinking of studying at Northumbria?

Just go with it, you won't regret the experience that you'll have.
