I am an independent multi- & crossmedia designer.
What I do varies between concept, content & visual design.
I advise in the use of media and create concepts, but I’m also not scared to take matters into my own hands and create the content and do the visual design myself.
For some projects, that means I am my own crew most of the time!
The role I presume when working on my own projects, varies greatly, because I do a lot of work as a one-man crew.
In those cases I could be called anything and everything!
And that’s just what I want, because it enables me to do many different and interesting projects and grow from the different experiences as a designer or adviser.
I like to take on roles as: art director, concept writer, illustrator, graphic designer, story and content writer, film maker, animator, editor and sometimes even programmer.
Some projects are to big for my one-man crew though. So sometimes, I ask the help of other designers that have more expertise at particular fields. As much as I like doing everything myself, I also see the value of a team. Sometimes it’s better for the end result to share the work, and share a bit of the responsibility you feel.
But in most of my own work here on this site I am the director of every aspect, what helped me grow as a designer.
