Charles Skender was born in Perth, Australia in 1990. Undertaking the later part of his secondary education at Hale High School, he studied Literature, Applicable Mathematics, Calculus, Geography, Physics and Art; a decision which has undoubtedly procured the innovative approach Charles has to the majority of his design work. In 2008 he enrolled in a Bachelor of Environmental Design (Architecture) in which he obtained a high distinction average. Un-satisfied with the level in which he was able to maximise the breadth of his previous studies, Charles moved to Melbourne in 2009 to embark on his current degree, Bachelor of Industrial Design, at RMIT. Over his three years of study he has strived to immerse himself in as many experiences as possible developing a key design philosophy of sustainability through innovation. His projects attempt to display simplicity, nostalgia and humour while at the same time creating a new user experience.
