ABOUT

“good design is a lot like clear thinking made visual”

Quote above is by Edward Tufte, an American expert on information design. My name is Maciek and I say – Absolutely! In today’s busy & buzzy reality a well thought-out and distilled design is no longer an option but necessity. Less is more and only those messages conveyed in simple enough form and with emotional context have enough power to get into people’s hearts and minds.

“You’re Magic!” – I hear that a lot. That’s how you pronounce my name so it’s an never-ending source of craic when meeting new people. It’s also a lovely compliment for a job well done. I must say it gives me so much joy and pride, especially when it comes straight from satisfied client. After all that’s what matters in business –  a happy customer who will eagerly come back again.

With over 4 years of experience in design and 7 years in event business I had an opportunity to design for literally hundreds of clients, from small local businesses to multinational giants. I know all the joys & challenges of running a design department. Have a look at my portfolio, I hope you’ll like it.
