About Me

I’ve been a graphic designer for more than 20 years. I graduated Warsaw’s Acedemy of Fine Arts in the graphics department, in the atelier of prof. Janusz Stanny. The last 15 years was building the image of the TVN television. For 12 years I was in command of the TVN graphics department. I deal with TV animation, developing leads, trailers and infographics. I’m the author of the majority of graphic designs created from the very beggining of the station’s existence – first Fakty”, “Uwaga”, “Fakty, ludzie, pieniadze”, “Automaniak”, “Mam Talent”, “Dzień Dobry TVN” and many more. Now I run my own Graphic Design Studio ARTISGRAF, and I’m a Head of Creative at Television PULS. Since my stundent times with great pleasure I illustrate books, design logos and visual identification. I worked on and illustrated series of manuals for pedagogical publishing houses. In recent years I prepared and illustrated a whole publishing cycle for the “MUZA” publishing house for the Arturo Perez Reverte “Captain Alatriste” book series. I’m the author of the visual identification of many companies. For the needs of commercials I work mainly as an animation graphic designer, motion designer and 3d designer. I work in 3ds Max, VIZrt, After Effects, Fusion, Blender, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Flash, Xara Web Designer, Curious Maps and many more. I also paint and draw with traditional tools.
