Hi, I'm Mareks - a freelance multidisciplinary designer with over 18 years of experience in graphic and product design. Originally from Latvia, I am currently living and working in Vejle, Denmark.
I've been drawing since I was a child and it is still the most natural way to express myself. After studying at School of Applied Arts in Riga, I had a chance to learn about the printing processes whilst working in the print industry.
There I was caught making weekly cartoons of my managers, which surprisingly led me to the company's graphic design department. That's where I discovered my real passion and lifetime occupation. They showed me the basic principles and the rest was self-learning while working on interesting projects over the following years.
At some point I founded my own studio offering graphic design services and worked closely with the advertising agency KoBalts. Later I was invited to move to Denmark to work with the Danish innovator Ulrik Skovgaard Rasmussen on his brilliant coffee brewer idea.
I entered the project from the very beginning and worked on it for 10 years. I was responsible for different fields including visual identity, product design, printing, product photos and video. The product has won a series of prestigious design-awards and is sold all over the world.
Feel free to contact me if you have an interesting project, need a logo, packaging solution for your product or just advice to find the best printing options.
