Overview

Hi there, I'm Dominik! I am a Graphic Designer and Art Director with 6 years experience in creative industry.
I can draw, paint and photograph (or use a ready artwork if you have one) to design an adult or a children's book cover. I have designed them for such authors as: Tom Palmer, Robert Swindells, Chris Priestley, Catherine MacPhail, Phil Earle, Bernard Ashley, Linda Newbery, Eric Brown and many more. If you also need to design professional marketing materials to promote your book you've found the right guy. I gained experience in advertising working as na art director in a worldwide known agency Publicis, creating BTL and ATL campaigns for Garnier, Renault, Orange and Nestle. My first kids campaign for Nestle (Cactus Ice-cream) won a Silver EFFIE Award Poland for the most effective campaign of the year. The brand heroes I've designed are still extremely popular among kids and teenagers. I can also design and generate a fancy font based on a handwriting (your's or mine;), you can check one in the intro of the UK Edition of Baroux nad Bessora's ALPHA Picturebook. With my previous advertising agency experience I know what the word deadline means, that is why job's always done on time. Happy to answer any questions!
