Damian Krainski

UX/UI and Visual Designer

La Línea de la Concepción, Spain
More then 9 years experience in graphic and UI design, working for big name brands as well as for SMEs or Individuals. My work is based on a combination of knowledge, research and experience-based intuition.

Over the last few years I've shifted my focus to UI/UX design and I believe that good design should not only look great but communicate and provide great user experience. I pay attention to the newest trends and to the practical side of design. I have a keen eye for the details and I’m always trying to make my designs to be pixel perfect.

I've gained my experience through working in new media group, advertisement and Interactive agencies and also as a freelancer/contractor. Actually I am gaining experience at work for the one of the biggest UK gambling companies.

I know how to transform good idea in to a working piece of art. My skills are covering wide range of design: adverts, web design (web sites, landing pages, portals), mobile apps, print (DTP) and branding. I have vast knowledge of usability rules, UX/UI design (prototyping/wire framing as well) and actual trends in Internet. I know how to do animation (in Flash) and basic video editing and montage (Premiere).

I love what I do for living. I am communicative, and serious when it comes to my work. What I can offer you is top quality of design and professional approach. All of that on time!

Brands I've been working for:
Microsoft, Unilever, Nestle, Cin&Cin, Lexus, Peugeot, Daikin, Ferrero (Nutella, TicTac), Gala Coral Group and more..
