After working "in house" designer I decided to take it much further to to start doing a freelance work with private clients.

I managed to build good connections that helped me along with the path.

I managed to reach the senior level as a Graphic designer.

I can now present information in a way that is both accessible and memorable, can produce design solutions to communicate client messages with high visual impact.

I can work on variety of products and activities, such as advertising, books, magazines, posters, corporate communications and corporate identity, i.e. giving organisations a visual 'brand'.

Junior graphic designer

Entry Level

As a start to my profession, I was aiming to gain experience by working with senior designers on a range of ambitious and innovative projects.

Improving my communication skills was a big target of the job, feeling confident enough to contribute to the entire creative process.

As a junior designer my main job was to lay out pages, draw logos, redraw logos, rework text, perform color corrections and overall take on the basic duties that help me get to know the ins and outs of graphic design.

I tried to work on multiple aspects of one project but and take on only one or two tasks at a time.

I did get a lot of experience at the design office which helped me to move to my next opportunity.
