Maxim Serkov

Moscow, Russian Federation
I’m a 21-years-old creative graphic designer. I started practicing graphic design as a hobby in 2007 and, somehow, it turned out to be my passion. Having developed my unique style I started to work as a freelance designer. I work in various fields such as print, packaging & corporate design, as well as art-direction. I'm the founder of CrayonMag™ – a magazine dedicated to modern-art and aimed to inform and inspire our readers in such fields as design, architecture, photography and many others. Under certain circumstances the project is put on ice at the moment. Also, I’m the founder of Art Union™. Art Union is the blog about modern-art where you can find your daily dose of inspiration. I have a hobby – photography. I take my camera every time I go or travel somewhere.
