I specialise in traditional arts, as well as in graphic design. I perform my projects using the full spectrum of my natural artistic skills and the efficiency-oriented professionalism I developed. I’m an unrestful and creative mind, always looking for fresh, extraordinary ideas and conceptualisations.

I’m open to any propositions, where my abilities and my technical base might be useful.

My Skills

I like all the styles of drawing, painting (including oil), photography, lettering and typography, as well as manipulation with paper and any kind of objects (both sculpture and the “theatre of objects”).

My strength is an almost perfectly mastered understanding of the movement, anatomy, emotional expression, body language and gravity concerning both still life, human bodies and animals (especially birds). That’s where my passion to make comic stories, animated films, theatrical scenes with anything close at hand came from. In the “theatre of object” each mascot, pillow or mug has a complex “personality” and individual desires. Creating the scenes with the mascots and other items serve me as an attractive method of spending my free time, which allows me to not neglect the observing and creative parts of my personality.

In my work I:

 Design the corporate identity (logo, business cards, letterhead paper etc., as well as a full CI Book),

 Prepress – preparing books, periodicals, posters, flyers etc. to print,

 Design websites and their details (banner ads, graphics for social media, etc.),

 Do any other forms of indoor and outdoor advertising,

 Create and edit video, including animation.

I also do:

 Photo retouching and montage,

 OCR (Optical Character Recognition) – converting scanned materials into editable digital documents, with further adjustments,

 Individual portraits combining traditional arts with digital design,

 Illustrations and covers for any press materials and books,

 Design and prepress catalogues, brochures, bulletins etc.

I also do any individual and nonstandard projects, both in classical arts and graphic design. For me, there are no projects impossible to handle.

I graduated Printing Technical College (traditional and modern Desktop Publishing) and the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw (in traditional and digital Graphic Design and Motion Pictures), together with some further schooling like an Advertising College.

That opened to me a door to work for the biggest international companies like Adobe or BBDO . After several years of relationship with big corporations, I decided to work on my own, as it gives me more satisfaction and is far more efficient in a healthy creativity.

I’ve managed to accumulate equipment and resources, that in my opinion surpass the hardware which is in reality used in the advertising agencies. This enables me an unrestrained work using the equipment perfectly tailored to my needs and a full control over the efficient performance of the projects, in a way I regard as adequate (amount of work and time minimization, effectiveness maximization). And I’m proud of that.

I translate between English and Polish, mostly the astrological writings.
I’m fluent in English and Polish languages.
Intermediate in German.
Have a basic knowledge of Japanese.
I’m in the process of learning Spanish and Ancient Greek.

Furthermore, I’m learning the alphabets of Chinese, Hindi, Russian and Greek languages, as well as the ancient ones, for instance Mesopotamian cuneiform writing. Thanks to that, I can understand various writing and pronunciation systems, and so working with foreign materials (either prepressing a book or editing a video), sometimes very exotic, is not a problem.

I have also organized events, openings and exhibitions. I have collaborated as an art group, which organized art exhibitions with unusual opening days. (see a press Article in Polish about the/our group).
