They say a good way to learn more about yourself is by interacting with others. The one thing I’ve learned during all these years of working with clients is that good rapport is essential for a smooth working relationship.
It’s also true that technical proficiency and experience are key to the success of a project. Sure i can tell you about how many years I’ve spent training as a computer specialist, starting with the weekly hours in high school, followed by four years at one of the toughest faculties in my country and ending with a two year masters program in Multimedia and Audio-Video Production. I can also mention all the reference books I’ve read on subjects relating to my work. But that’s just part of the story and more or less are a given for anyone who wishes to take themselves seriously.
I’ll do however, let you in on a little secret. I’m neither the best designer out there nor the most experienced. A real shocker, i know. I can’t complain though, because still having things to learn and discover is what makes it all worthwhile.
I do have a feeling you’re also interested in learning about the real me, not just my training. What i like both on and off working hours.
I do pride myself in being fair and i do know to offer a sincere apology if i make a mistake. I’m sort of a perfectionist that appreciates the beauty of true old school craftsmanship and loathes leaving things unfinished. I’m a firm believer that a lot of problems are a result of miscommunication so that’s why I’m known to ask a lot of questions and double check. Might sound like a cliche but I enjoy my job and, in many respects, it’s one of the best in the world. What other confirmation could there be than not wanting to go to sleep so you could continue working on a project you love.
I do like a client that challenges me but only if there’s mutual respect, trust and self confidence involved. This is one of these sweet spots where everybody wins. However, I’m not too fond of being turned into a computer mouse with design experience (has happened a couple of times) or being involved in testing random ideas just for the sake of it.
Now what about my personal interests? Well, unfortunately (or not) i get bored easily.
That’s why I’m constantly looking for interesting new things to do, be it reading, browsing the Web, trying to stay active through various sporting activities or traveling. Depending on season, you’ll find me hiking local mountains, riding my MTB up steep bike trails and road climbs or swimming in the sea. For a while there i also had a keen interest in semi-professional photography which i now replaced with drawing/illustration and shy attempts at playing the piano.
