  • Work process:
  • 1.Initial sketches are made from scratch with pencil and paper where I try to present different styles and solutions for project-based on brief, references and my feelings.
  • If needed, based on chosen concept, requested changes and comments I working on other solutions which I want to propose.
  • 2. After discussion and revisions, I preparing a final sketch of chosen concept to approve all details with a client.
  • 3. Working with vectors. Final sketches are starting point for vectorization process. I have put the image with a sketch on the separate layer with lower opacity and beginning work with Beziers, shapes, and guides. Because the vector is a final product and the most important thing in this case thanks to this tools I can save time and don't need to spend many hours working on a sketch with an extra level of accuracy at every time, but when it is highly detailed I'd like to spend more time on preparations.
  • 4. Fine polishing, colors, preparing for presentation and use.


  • Post Scriptum
  •  At every stage, I am spending some time on additional revisions as needed. When initial sketches are not on point, I must make new ones, when more than one looks interesting, I develop all of them, When I think  that final sketch or vector needs to be built with another element than I thought earlier, I am trying to find different solutions, change details, add or remove them.  Sometimes it takes much time, sometimes everything rolling quite fast, there are no rules because I am not using fonts or templates. Every design is a new design and a new challenge for me.
