My short story

I have been interested in visual arts since I was a teenager. Unfortunately, I had no access to a college or university at the time which offered applied visual arts education, so I had to learn the necessary skills on my own. Shortly thereafter I had the opportunity to work with some expert photographers and graphic artists allowing me to improve further. My skills and experience now cover a wide range of Creative Arts techniques, allowing me to fulfil complex tasks as well as to develop custom solutions for specific purposes.

Do you really need a big team?

Big teams result sometimes nothing more than one good professional

There are many advantages of a big team. But think it again…

A big team needs more space, more tools, more leaders, more support, more…, more…, more…, and that results in more expenses. Don’t chase rainbows, that make high prices to you as a customer.

Sometimes you have to use teams to get things done. But there are a lot of assignments that don’t need big teams to get it done. You can get it for less and maybe faster and better.

The words are one thing. But there are great pieces of evidence too.
