Michal on drip visual: At drip, we help project initiators to visualise the essence of their ideas. By helping our clients to communicate their ideas clearly, convincingly and in high quality – right from the early design stages, we successfully support them in launching products, collecting funding, obtaining planning permissions, convincing and inspiring stakeholders. We want to use our interdisciplinary architectural training and strong visual communication skills to help individuals and organisations to communicate and explain their innovative ideas better. By combining knowledge from physical model making, data analysis, 3D modelling and visualisation – we want to create a team of master explainers and great visual storytellers. I’ve noticed that creatives, especially project initiators, often need to communicate their design ideas simply and effectively. Most of the services available on the market, supporting them with project communication, focus mainly on refined and final design stages – picturing rather than explaining. I wanted to use my skills to help them, and build a creative organisation that gets involved in many exciting projects.
Michal on Entrepreneurship: For me, entrepreneurship is essentially an ability (and, if done well – a superpower) to turn ideas into products and functioning organisations. It’s a joy and an obligation of initiating things. Faculties of architecture and built environment are full of young people with great ideas who want to see the world and environment change for the better. But upon graduation, they join various organisations and very often are forced to comply with the ‘business as usual’ – going against their own values. Being taught entrepreneurial skills gives us tools and confidence to initiate our own projects or actively take part in shaping the organisations we are part of. I believe that by focusing on the real needs of other people and seeking viable market solutions – an entrepreneurial attitude turns designers into more grounded, empathetic and practical problem solvers.
