Dexter Ferguson’s enthusiasm for design and innovative spirit shines through in this latest episode of Revision Path! Dexter has been in the design world for only a few years but he’s already a passionate and knowledgeable voice in the industry. His life motto “Strive for progression, not perfection” perfectly sums up his approach to his career, design, and his hopes for the future. With a background in traditional graphic design, Dexter has navigated the ever-changing trends of the business and is now the Product Designer for Aerial, Airbus’s commercial drone startup service.

His infectious attitude is matched only by his entrepreneurial drive to succeed, and help the world, on his way to the top!
