VIDEO: Ornare Presents Design Talk

Federico Teran of the Fede Design Group is a true original. This charming architect studied his craft in Mexico and was teaching architecture there before changing careers and going into the music business where he helped to launch American acts into the Spanish market.

After working with many big musical acts, Teran relocated to Miami and eventually made the switch back into architecture with the Fede Design Group.

In this latest Design Talk, learn about Teran's design philosophy as well as his thoughts on creativity and how it applies to professions outside of design.
