Naming conventions

How to avoid having "final.psd", "final final.psd", "final final ver2.psd"?
Simply name them by the date created for the project to take "project_14_06_19.psd" look. Such a simple thing, but this is a revelation for many.

Business notes

General / 11 June 2019

Charging by the hour punishes me for being good and efficient.

- I want to pay you by the hour. How many hours did it take you to design this?

- My entire life. If I am 32 now, then let's calculate and multiply. 32 by 365 by 24 is 280 320 hours. 

Most business people value time. So if they can get their logo done in 5 minutes rather than wait for 4 months, they better do it. If I do a logo for you in 5 minutes, should you pay me less? You should pay me more because I have just saved you a lot of time.

Maybe you want to save some money, but in the end, you get what you pay for. 

Ask "what is your printing budget? Where all does the logo go? What happens if it goes wrong?" 

Clients go for the least risky options.

Know their yearly revenue and the estimates of what will be the revenue rise after you have done your fantastic illustrative and graphic design job for them. You can also consult on what area to concentrate.

Flight to the distant shores...

I love making fast sketches

General / 01 September 2018

And this one is an illustration for one of my photo reference packs "Central Asian architecture". Even though I am quite good at traditional drawing techniques, both digital and analog, I  love photobash because it provides me with an  amazing amount of details in a blink of an eye :)



It is holiday mood!

Flying to the distant mountain...

General / 17 July 2018

A quick photobash. I love doing these small exercises before going to the bed, they are so relaxing and make my mind fly far away into the dream realms. Good night.

There is no story behind this picture, only my obsession with white fluffy things :D
