Please tell us a bit about your background. How did you get started in design?

I started playing around in Photoshop about 15 years ago and guess what – I liked it. Of course I did, otherwise you wouldn’t be reading this page :)

I call myself a graphic designer first and foremost, yet I have skills and passions in many areas of computing, internet, programming, design, usability and troubleshooting. Okay, I lied a little. I’m not passionate about troubleshooting but I seem to have a mind that’s tuned to that sort of thing.

Clients can be active in any field. I'm mostly working on any print design and websites (corporate, e-commerce, magazines)


What advice would you give a client in order to prepare for a new project?

Write down your ideas and organize your thoughts first.


What is the most common problem you deal with when working with new clients who do not have much experience with working with designers?

Write down your ideas and organize your thoughts first.


Do you use a CRM (Customer Relationship Manager) or any type of project management or proposal software?
