I'm a Maker Because...
Giaco Whatever interview
What inspires you to keep making things?
"The other day I went to a very nice store selling really nice things. I’m not gonna say what store it was, but I really wanted to buy some of those products. The price was kinda high, but I really wanted a few. But then the more I was looking at them, the more I could see things that I would have preferred done differently. I couldn’t really choose which one I liked the best because they all had pro and cons based on my personal needs.
So I thought 'F*** it, I’ll make my own'.
This is what keeps me learning and making new things!"
What one piece of advice would you give to other makers?
"I’m not in the position of giving any advice to anyone, but I’d say to try new things everyday. Get out of your comfort zone and try WHATEVER!"
"Try new things everyday. Get out of your comfort zone and try whatever..." — Giaco Whatever
