Why am I an RGD?I genuinely believe in recognizing graphic design professionals as a vital creative force that helps develop effective business solutions and improves the quality of our everyday lives. By advocating high standards, professional ethics, and better education, RGD stands for our professional community.
What is my most memorable RGD moment?I've got a couple of memorable RGD moments. The first one was when I got interviewed by an RGD member not long after I became a member myself. The next day I got a call with a positive result. The second moment was when I helped my fellow designer learn more about the association and the conference, and eventually, he became one of us. It feels good.
Why am I a designer?Looking back at my childhood, I often remember coming to my dad's work - he was an engineer. I was always fascinated by the design tools, blueprints, and the vibe of the place. Later, during my college years as an industrial design student, I realized the importance of visual solutions for any design - whether it is an object, a package, or a poster.
Why should you hire me?Creating the "just right" visual identity for your product or brand can be a challenging task - that's why I take special care to understand the problem entirely and work with you to find the best possible, well-thought-out, intelligent solution.
Where do I see myself in 5 years?I see myself continuing to grow as a professional, as there is always something to learn in the ever-changing creative world. I also strive to move into a position where I can help other designers grow and discover the best practices in the industry.
