Denise Flasz

Hello! My name is Denise Flasz, I was born in Caracas, Venezuela but I currently live in NYC. I got my BFA in illustration at the Instituto de Diseño de Caracas,and then I decided to do an MFA in Multimedia design at the Centro de diseño digital. After all this college experience and some freelancing I worked for almost two years in a Visual Communication enterprise named Oruga Films, where I can say that I learned many of the things I now know and also gained a lot of experience in what professional work and team work matters. Since I was in college I new I wanted to grow bigger and achieve many goals in life, and for this I knew that if I wanted to do great I had to attend a great school, so I applied and of course choose Parsons New School of Design. For me it was really hard to pick what I wanted to do in this school, and what kind of major I wanted to get involved into, because many things seemed so valuable and incredible interesting that it was really hard to make up my mind, and that's when I saw the DT program and how wide it was, and started projecting and realizing how much I could achieve from this major and how good it was going to be for me.

List two things you found surprising about prototypes

Well since the beginning I had a clear idea of how I wanted to make this “trash man” I knew how the role was going to be and how it would become implement. But when I tried doing the look and feel it all started to fit well together, but the surprising thing was coming with a solution on how was the wire going to hold the trash inside, and also questions started popping into my mind on how are people going to interact with it and that’s how I came to the idea of using gloves or Purell. But in general the only surprising thing was how fast I could create this wire man.
