Who we are and what we do

What Designers do

Whether it is in illustrations, movies or literature, designers give shape to ideas. They mold scientific and technical concepts into creative products used in many walks of life. Of course, in all the media forms in this line of work, economic and functional aspects also play an important role. This exciting field has a great demand for creative and highly qualified people who develop and implement new ideas.

Designers may have their own business or find employment at advertising agencies and design studios where they work on creative, practical and design projects. If they work in art direction, they develop communication ideas that they implement independently or as part of a team. They may create illustrations and graphic designs for authors and publishers. In cooperation with manufacturing companies, businesses and public institutions, they may develop and design campaigns, brand appearances and corporate images. Designers also work in editing movies or TV programs or implementing virtual concepts for game software.
