Your current job : 

I have been working as a freelancer for 4 years. I set up my own graphic studio Design Way this year.

In which city are you located? 

I have my office in Mnichovo Hradiste in Central Bohemia, The Czech Republic.

A word to define what kind of worker you are : 

I am quick, but precise and responsible. Sometimes I lack motivation. I should rest more to get some inspiration.

What tools are essential to your life (app, software, etc..) 

Photoshop, Illustrator, Wacom tablet, headphones.

What does your office space look like? 

These days I am alone in my small and simple office, it is only my space. I tidy up only when a client is to come.

I like calm electronic music. I don’t know how to work in quiet.

Do you have a way to organize your day to maximize your work ? 

I tried many times to organize my day, but no attempt was successful. The only way could be to switch off my phone. But this wouldn’t be accepted by my clients and my wife.

What tips would you give to improve productivity ? 

Best way to start my day is morning meditation and exercise. The most important is working on the main project the whole morning without checking e-mails and messages.

You’re better than your colleagues to : 

I am precise and I check every output I send to my clients. I listen to my clients, so I do the work for them, for their needs, not for me and my porto folio.

Do what you love.
