Designer, Illustrator, Photographer and Filmmaking who is currently living in Oporto, Portugal.
For many designers, doing self-initiated projects and personal work is an essential part of being a designer. It's a way of staying motivated. For others, it's a waste of time and a denial of the true roel of the designer as someone who responds to external briefs. Which is it?
Graphic design and illustration used to sleep in the same bed; today they sleep in separate rooms. This is odd, because many designers crave the freedom of expression enjoyed by illustrators, and many are doing work tha looks like illustration.
