Cooperating with an experienced individual designer you will find a good alternative to large advertising and branding companies, because:

  1. There is no responsibility shifting. Only one person is responsible for your project.
  2. Nobody trains novice designers at your expense. (за ваш счет)
  3. 100% of the time is devoted to your project.
  4. You entrust the budget to the particular person. You have a possibility to control the working process on your project.
  5. The price for individual designer services is more affordable than the price for companies’ ones which employ a staff of qualified specialists.


As I’m a freelancer there are a lot of leading companies and branding agencies from Germany, USA, China, UAE, Romania, Russia and other countries in the list of my clients. You are welcome.
