I got award from The Society for News Design for the redesign of business newspaper Pari daily with Jacek Utko. Attended various seminars by Mignon Media, Chimera (Poland), Javier Zarracina Info graphics seminar” and SND Boston 2007.

How I create
To achieve the best results in every project I stick to a simple four milestones design process:
Milestone I - Analysis:
The main component in good design is to understand the clients and the recipients. Understand the target and the impression that must be made clear and unambiguous. So i get to know the client, understand his needs and create his full profile.
Milestone II - Design Concepts:
I start with creating not more then three concepts, so the choice will be plane and simple.
Milestone III - Concept Development:
After the client chooses one of the concepts as "THE ONE", I create a finished design concept, which becomes the new face of the client. After a few tweaks it is ready to meet the world.
Milestone IV - Final Design:
The client receives a high quality design files, style-books, which are ready for printing and/or production
