"When it comes to design, I love the idea of playing by the rules and simultaneously breaking them. This sets the tone for me to create something new, relevant, and fresh. There’s so much cultural diversity, influence, and mixtures of lifestyles today that I feel design should showcase that vibrancy, and sense of surprise. I feel my work will always integrate an essence of Miami’s vibrant edge, ”Old Florida” sophistication, and elements from my own Cuban-Caribbean heritage. As a local designer, I also feel a deep desire to divert people from a many times generalized Miami stereotype, and showcase another side of South Florida design that the industry and its followers can enjoy and find inspiration from” – Maggie Cruz
