My name is Piotr and I’m a graphic designer and illustrator based in Derry, Northern Ireland. With over 8 years of experience in the creative industry, I became comfortable with designing both within print and digital mediums. I would often work on projects that required original creative ideas, alongside creating deliverables that would have to conform to strict brand guidelines. In more recent years, I’ve focused much of my personal work on illustration - work which is often influenced by popular culture, fine art, music, personal experiences and humour. Passionate and enthusiastic, I am always on the lookout for the next exciting challenge to help push my creative boundaries.Locked Pro Plan feature
Employment at Wurkhouse requires a measure of comfort working within a large and highly productive team in a fast-paced environment. Collaborations with designers and marketers are commonplace as well as working independently when the situation requires it. Day-to-day tasks within Wurkhouse are primarily based around print design, branding, brand application, online application prototyping, illustration and storyboarding for animated videos. Inspiration to pursue 3D sculpting within my free-time occurred during this employment period. Previously, and for a period of one year, Wurkhouse assigned one of our biggest clients to me - the insurance company ‘LV=’ - to be conducted in a managerial role. This involved organising and delegating work to team members for deadlines, alongside quality control. Throughout my time working with ‘LV=’, my individual contributions, aided by my skills to various campaigns and applications, won or were shortlisted for financial business awards such as Moneyfacts and B2B Awards.
Effective time management was essential due to juggling additional part-time work as a Printer in a Wedding Shop, and later as a Customer Service Assistant at NEXT. Working mostly for local clients, this period of time helped me develop a greater passion for design and pushed my resolve to work harder in achieving my goal of becoming a full-time designer. One of the illustrations produced while freelance featured on the Irish version of the popular television program “Dragon’s Den”.
Working with professionals was an enlightening experience and a fantastic introduction to the industry.
