Successful projects that inspire my customers.
Here you can get a little insight into my creative work. Over the last few years, I was allowed to create and develop logos and brands for different clients and works at different stages of my professional career.
Each logo represents a station of my career as a designer and tells a little story. It is the result of an intense journey with the client and reflects the identity and vision of the company in question. In my work, I try to capture the individual characteristics, values and goals of my clients and express them visually.
A logo is a complex and partially analog process that is made up of a variety of elements. I work very closely with clients to capture the visual representation and work with them to develop the solutions. I take the client on a design journey and show them the different options available at different stages. On the one hand, the importance of typography and its effect on the viewer, and on the other hand, the color scheme and graphic elements. I always try to form an aesthetically pleasing logo and present my clients with a long-lasting result.
