WHAT MAKES ME DIFFERENT?
I live and breathe design.
You can learn Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator etc., but these are just tools. You can't learn PASSION FOR DESIGN, when you "raise" your design work and feel it.
I CARE about it, I want my design to make people HAPPY, help them FEEL GOOD and maybe even SMILE!
Designer should be hungry for knowledge, open for new turns on design path, ready to start over and dare more.
Challenge herself and be aware of amazing design works happening every second around the world.
Designer needs to have something from childhood when we believe that IMPOSSIBLE is POSSIBLE.

10 BELIEFS ABOUT DESIGN ↓
I believe design is the way of thinking and seeing, seeing and thinking.
I believe design is not a profession or work, etc., it is the way to live the life.
I believe design is extremely hard, and incredibly easy.
I believe design is something to discover all your life.
There will always be something you don’t know and it is quite beautiful!
I believe design is about making choices.
I believe “Imagination is more important than knowledge,” I trust Einstein.
I believe designers do read...much more than people think we do.
I believe designers should have a sense of humor.
I believe designers should know about each other's projects.
We should see each other with the "eyes wide shut."
I don’t believe I love design, I know that.
I believe design is about changes. And some of my 10 beliefs would alter in time.
“I strive for two things in design: simplicity and clarity. Great design is born of those two things.”
