MIRDESIGN: Graphic Design, Branding, Visual Identity Drawing things is my passion even before I am able to remember. I always used drawings to express myself better. I started my career over 15 years ago as a graphic designer in the signage biz, then in a print house, then in advertising, so I'm no stranger to the beautiful world of print. I am used to several print methods: screenprinting, padprinting, offset printing, rotogravure printing, flexo printing and digital printing. That’s why the main advantage you’ll get working with me is the guarantee that your image will look nice everywhere, on your monitor screen, on paper or any other printed materials or media. For over two years I work as a frelancer. My personal goal regarding my work is to position my clients above their competitors because of their distinctive image, helping them to better visual communicate with their clients, ultimately increasing client’s profit. There are so many things, but to make you a better ideea, here is a list of answers to some of the most frequently asked questions a potential client might ask. What do you sell? The only things I’m selling are time, creativity, experience and my technical skills. What can you do? Below is a list of the main things I can do for you: 1. Brand Identity There are different kinds of brand identity projects. You may need it for a company, a company’s service or a product. Depending on that, there could be different things to design. Among them I could mention: logo, visit cards, letterhead, envelope, presentation folder, personalized objects& Others: flyers, leaflets, catalog, badges, labels / packaging product, book cover, CD / DVD cover, internet banners, posters, presentations, menus... 2. Photo Retouching (slightly modifying, adding touches/details and color/contrast correction for improvement) 3. Image manipulation (making a photographic composition which simulates real or surreal scenes) 4. Photography 5. 3D Modeling For more detailed examples of what I can do, you please visit the “Portfolio” section of this site. How do you work? Of course, first things first. We have to define the theme. I must find out as many things as I can about your needs. If you have a design brief, this could help much.& Step two is doing some personal research, usualy on the internet and if it is necessary on any other sources of information. This will take some time (as short as it is possible), but knowledge is power and both of us wish to be powerfull, right? This research helps me very much to get in touch with the theme. Step three is about sketching some possibilities. This is the moment where my creativity have to meet your needs, based on what I learned about this theme. Usualy I have one or two strong options. Best of these sketches will be submited to you as .jpg or .pdf file. After you analize the sketches and decide if my ideea is apropriate for this theme, you have to formulate your review about that. Usualy, based on your oppinion I’ll know what to do next in order to accomplish my part of job. I’ll either finalise the project, or make any revisions agreed upon. There is always room for some changes. After we agree the final form, the artwork will be supplied via email or made available for download, depending on it’s size.& Can you offer further assistance? Certainly our colaboration doesn’t end when the final artwork is delivered. I always offer my answers to any design related question. Can you help me with commercial printing? Yes, I could have some recommendations. More than that, I would be glad to offer my advice regarding the printing process, inks, materials, special printing techniques or how to save some printing costs for you. Can you help me with registering a mark? Of course. I’ll be glad to introduce you to one of my collaborators. Thank you! If you have any other questions feel free to send them via email Layouts. In this chapter there are a few of my layouts that were somehow printed in the end: offset, flexo, rotogravure... I have to say it from the beginning, I am not a professional photographer but I took some pictures that I would love to share. Professionals will judge me. I would appreciate your comments on my personal mail. Logos. That is how most of the stories begin. Photo Manipulation. Probably there are no limits here. It is amazing!
