Will Work For MoodMY CAREER MOTTO

Guziuk Mikołaj

I am a graphic designer based in Poland. After graduating from Active Study Techniques of Film and Theatre (Warsaw) in 2005, I've worked in several bigger and smaller agencies. I’m not a kind of workaholic, but I trully can’t understand people wishing me to have a nice weekend because I’m waiting for monday like a little boy for Christmas. Of course it depends much on a place where I work. But generally, I just love what I do. Convinced that devil is in the details and it does matter 3 px to the left or right. Asking the right questions and finding solutions is a key to success.

Cross-platform BrainMULTITASKING ON BOARD

I focus on web design, interface design and branding. Trying to deliver user-centered, grid based and smart solutions. Aiming to make the product useful, understandable, and aesthetic – I choose to communicate visually in a simple way. The world around us is overcomplicated to complicate it more.

Connecting the dots THE WAY I WORK

question

It's about asking yourself the right questions after getting a brief. Framing design problems and defining tasks connected with a project realisation.

ideas

The most important part of a creative process. It determines the way project can be realised. Ideas are everywhere: nature, music, film, photography, etc.

sketching

At this step I start sketching selected ideas, creating concepts. Rather with a thick marker than with a pen or pencil, turning to the details.

design

Pixel by pixel, from wireframes to final product, adding content and details - the project transforms into final product.

polishing

It's time to clean up layers, check hovers, write down notes for dev's or prepare guidelines for a logo.
