A Closer Look with Gabriel Lira

We had the pleasure of interviewing Gabriel Lira, a Brasil based designer who has an incredible eye for branding and a strong entrepreneurial spirit. 

How long have you been in design?
I’ve worked as a designer since 2007, but design has been an important part of my life since I was a kid. I knew from the start that I would use the creative part of my brain to guide me through life. I always liked to draw and when I was a teenager I started drawing rock band’s logos, with inspiration from songs from bands like AC/DC, Black Sabbath and Metallica.

A Closer Look with Akos Major

We had the pleasure of interviewing Akos Major, a freelance graphic designer and photographer whose peaceful photographs and simplistic techniques have caught our eye. 

How long have you been a photographer?
I bought my first camera in 2008, which was a Nikon D40x. I still have some of my first images in my portfolio – the Island series, and a few ones from the waterscapes series. I’m getting into photography more and more each day. It’s a discovery period, i’m trying new mediums, turned to shoot film, finding new subjects.

Describe your process when creating your ProSite
It was really easy thanks to the developers and the user friendly interface. I’m not good at coding, so it was a huge help. Sure, I want to improve the appearance of the whole site, just have to make a room for it besides the daily tasks – especially in the ‘about’ section. Overall, all I knew is that I wanted a clear looking site and i’m glad with the results.

What is your daily routine?
I’m working at home, so I have to schedule my tasks on my own. Usually I spend the forenoon hours with organization, answering to e-mails, managing things, etc. I like to do the work in the afternoon or in the morning, I don’t work at night. Also, i’m an early riser.

What inspires you and keeps you motivated?
Inspiration comes from everywhere, when i’m open-minded. Collecting inspirations has reached a new level with the internet – it’s coming, whether you want it or not. Browsing photography sites and creative magazines is very useful and keeps me updated. Besides that, I often visiting art galleries and exhibitions. But seeking inspiration doesn’t work always- sometimes it just finds me, and I love that.

What creative project you’ve worked on are you most proud of?
I did some illustrated forest murals for a department store café in London—it was nice to see my work shown on such a large scale. The team I worked with was really great and gave me a lot of creative freedom.

 What are some projects you hope to work on in the future?
I would like to photograph the North. Alaska, Greenland, Siberia are my most desired travel destinations. And Antarctica, of course. Working on a photography book would be awesome.

A Closer Look with Bex Glover

We had the pleasure of interviewing Bex Glover, a graphic designer, artist & illustrator living and working in Bristol, UK. 

How long have you been in design/illustration?
10 years

Do your personal projects differ from your professional work? If yes, how so?
Yes to some degree, my personal work is often more hand rendered / painting based -using markers and spray paint, and it tends to have a more abstract aesthetic. I like to emulate the hand rendered feel in my digital illustrative work too, but the style and subject matter will be dictated by the requirements of the brief. Some can be cleaner cut, simple, and digital in style, others more urban and freestyle. It’s great when you get projects where the client wants to do something based on your personal work –that’s often the more fun, creative stuff.
