My name is Tomasz Pietek. I was born on 5 september 1977 in Swiebodzice " a town situated in the region of Lower Silesia.
My adventure with graphics dates back to 1992 when I made the first drawings on my Amiga 500 using Deluxe Paint program and trying to follow the game graphics designers of that time. Low picture resolution, poor color range, all this pushed me to develop a precise technique in order to master each and every pixel.
Quite soon I started to present my works at the Demoscene, which was very popular those days. It was an informal group of computer enthusiasts, seeking to overcome the limitations of that time computers. The Demoscene was more than just a training of my graphic skills, it also gave me an important lesson of teamwork. Graphic designers, musicians and programmers worked all-together to elaborate new demos. Soon enough I achieved a high level of performance that resulted in an offer of cooperation with a company making computer games.
In 1996 I started to work in the Leryx Long Soft company producing computer games for the Polish market. Working those days with Amiga 1200, I was responsible for the majority of graphics design created for a strategic game called CLASH. After I had finished to work on CLASH, which was quite a success on Polish computer games market, our team started another big new project, which was the Vater Golem game. While working on Vater Golem, I was in charge of 2D graphics, that I had already performed on a PC by then.
Between 1998 and 2000 I was working as a freelancer for many major and minor clients, among others, for currently non-existing Poland.com and a monthly Parkiet. I was making game graphics, flash animations, 3D graphics and illustrations for some magazines.
In 2000 I was employed as a graphic designer in Pro-Creation company, where I was working much on web design. Apart from that I was supposed to create flash websites, animations, web portal designs, desktop wallpapers, logos and web banners.
From 2002 until the end of 2006 I was working in K2 Internet company, which also specialized in web design. However, my work mostly involved making banners and doing website projects that did not demand much creativity and imagination.
Currently I am hired in TVN Television at the New Media Department, where I make graphic design for websites. Read Less
