About me

David Minton, 1989, spanish / british dual national. I am an Architect and designer based in Valencia. I enjoy changing environments and diverse atmospheres where self-development is possible. 

During my studies I spent a year as an exchange student in Brussels and did a six month internship in an architecture agency in Bordeaux. In March 2015 I completed my architecture degree and started balancing work with an  Industrial Design MA.

Currently I am in Japan finishing the product design programme writing my Master thesis as an exchange research student.
