I've been designing since about year 2000. In many design jobs since 2005. As an ad agencies' subcontractor and an independent consultant since 2009.
I've been working for HP, Polska Telefonia Cyfrowa (Era, now renamed T-Mobile), Volkswagen, BP, Citi, Cadbury, Hasbro.
"Usability and accessibility", big correlation between the brief and final project - these are things important to me. Really.
Don't hesitate to contact me.

That's a real pleasure to work with Jan, he is a great professional who knows his work. He understands very quickly your expectations and makes real your idea in the twinkling of an eye. And sometimes that's better than you imagine! Definitely, I recommend him!

Jan worked on the logo of my company. Bodhak, which comes from a Sanskrit word Bodhi means awakening & enlightenment. I wanted a logo which could capture that and yet be very simple, which I felt was not very easy. Jan, did a tremendous job at the design and creativity. Its amazing that what he produced finally is exactly what was in my mind. Even the work done during the iterations was extremely helpful for me as well to understand the process. His patience and hard-work is what has produced Bodhak logo. And I am thankful to him for that.

To order a logo
The cost is usually somewhere between 250-750 EUR / 310-1000 USD - it depends on the quantity of initial concepts and additional elements (stationery, brandbook, ...).
To be more precise - if you order up to the six concepts package, it would cost you 250 EUR / 310 USD.
To order a logo:
back to top
- It would be great, if you send me design brief (if you created one) and/or data from QuiBri form (if you already know, what do you need) and/or a short description of your business. If you want me to follow your sketches while designing - please, send me pictures of them. Send me also an information for the invoice (your name or name of your business, full address with country and VAT UE for European Union clients).
- I create an invoice with 50% of final design cost. That would be the payment for initial concepts.
- In a week I'll create first logo concepts (three of usually six ordered concepts). Then I'll send you links to the projects. And after that:
Next designs are being made in case of definite rejection of previous ones. If we don't have the logo accepted till fourth concept, I'll ask you to describe your desired logo more precisely.
- If you accept one of the concepts without changes - write me about it immediately!
- If you accept the direction taken by one of the concepts, but not the final execution - write me, what changes you'd like to see in it.
- If you reject all the concepts - believe me, it's not very often that designer makes it exactly with a first shot - please write, what was good and what was bad. Your description will help me make next concept - we both hope it'll be the better one.
- When you accept the final logo design, I can start making files, that you'll need for different media - and that open with different graphic programs (CDR, AI, PDF). It will contain different logo variations (horisontal / vertical, full colour / monochromatic / achromatic, negative). At the same time I create the second invoice - when you pay it, I send you all the files.

Design rules that I follow:
back to top
- I design in vector graphics programs - so you'll receive vector files when you accept the final logo design.
- Logo should contain condensed information. It's important when you think of loosing details on such a small application as business card. That's why it will be symbolic picture - not the realistic one.
- It's important for me that your logo is really related to your marketplace - that's why I write, why did I choose such objects or design style. Logo should also represent your customers' desired feelings towards your business, and usually not just "the things you sell" (house should be "represented" by security and warmth, not symbolic house made of triangle placed in top of rectangle).
- I don't design using colour effects only - there are also black and white, all grey and negative version of logo - and in those cases colour has no meaning. That's why colour is not the most important thing in design.
- I adjust the feeling of your logo to the part of marketplace your company belongs to - for example electronics producer can differ - it depends if he produces for the young people or for the engineers.
- If you didn't order the minimum logo package to make your logo cheaper - I'd provide black and white, all grey, negative and horisontal + vertical logo versions. Horisontal version is better for website usage - it makes top of your website smaller, so user can see more content. Vertical version is usually better for the print (we wish your firm to grow and to sponsor some events in the future maybe - it's good then to have vertical logo to place it on an event poster in place, that usually resembles square).
- I usually choose typeface with relation to the degree of "conservativeness" of your business - serif as more conservative, sans-serif - more modern. Small letters are suggesting modern and friendly approach. Big letters - tradition, strength, structure. There are of course also traditional sans-serif typefaces and quite modern serif ones - as it usually is with well known rules.
- I design your logo to be visible among your business competitors. That's why I make it usually compact and with high saturated colours. There are of course marketplaces (lingerie for example), that show themselves as delicate products producers - I don't use that rule then.
