Name: Eldin Herić (eldindesign)
Location: Bihać, Bosnia and Herzegovina
My name is Eldin Herić and I’m a freelance graphic designer. I live in Bosnia and Herzegovina in a small town called Bihać. I was born on 29th May 1994 so I’m almost 17 years old. I just love design!
About your Experience with design:
I was 14 years old when I opened the Photoshop for the first time. I was 14 when I had a first client too. Now, after about three years I design all kinds of logos, websites, graphics and much more. I’m trying to have a professional relationship with my clients as much as I can. I consider that design is some sort of a hobby for me since I haven’t studied the design because I still go to high school.
Do you have a particular process you go through for each design?
Well, I usually read a design brief a couple of times. If the client wants a logo design, the first thing I do is sketching. I just grab my pen and start to translate my ideas on the paper. If the client wants website design or something related to it, I open the Photoshop and wait for the idea. Then I send few previews to my client, and if everything is okay we easily finish the job.
How would you describe your style?
I don’t really have a particular style but I love to design simple and minimalistic things.
How did you get your first job in design and what exactly was it?
The client just contacted me and he wanted a logo for his gaming clan.
What plans do you have for the future?
I plan to study graphic design, then I plan to find a very good job or even to open my own design studio.
Your expert areas:
Logo design, Website design and Stationary.
Your tools of work:
- Adobe Photoshop
- Adobe Illustrator
- Pen and Paper
Who or what is your biggest inspiration for graphic design?
That’s definitely the music. I like to listen to hip-hop when I work, especially Eminem. Also, I like to play basketball and that’s what inspiring me as well.
What advice would you give to other designers?
Be creative and always look for new ideas.
