LOGO DESIGNER INTERVIEW: SURAJ_GREENWEB
Tell us Suraj, how does where you live influence you as a designer?
There is plenty of clean air and noticeably less noise pollution. Having the beautiful Himalayan Mountains in my area really feels great.
Do you have any hobbies when you’re not designing?
I love watching comedy movies, action movies, as well as romantic movies. Plus listening to romantic and Bollywood songs.
Would you share with us some of your favorite things.
Going out with friends, watching TV programs with my family. Waking up late in the morning without any alarm, although that was not possible when i use to work for a private company. But now as a freelancer I can do it daily 🙂
You’ve been offered one superpower that you pick, what would you choose?
I would like the superpower of flying like Superman. This way I could see all beautiful countries in the world without any ticket!
What is your favorite style of music? or favorite musical artist?
I like romantic songs. My favorite musical artist is Lenka Kripac. Her song “End of the World“, I can listen to that song all day long. I love all her romantic songs.
What food items are in your house/refrigerator that you are most excited about?
Kheer (Indian Dish) which is a rice pudding and Rasgulla (Indian Dish), a syrupy dessert. I love sweet food items.
Where do you see yourself a year from now?
I would like to remain a Graphic designer and learn more in this field.
How long have you been in the graphic design field?
It’s been at least four year now.
Do you find yourself drawn to any certain types of contests?
Not really. I give importance to the information in the Contest Brief and the business name. If I like it and understand it, only then will I participate.
What is one of your favorite logo designs you have created through 48HL?
Some of my favorites are Angel Wings Hospice, The Kids Clubhouse, Capstone Home Repair, Inc., Rapid 3D Tech, The Write Content, Wind Dashboard, and Citrosoft. These are some of my favorite logo designs I have created at 48HL.
Do you have any go-to habits you practice to help you design?
Yeah, while designing I always like to listen to music in low volume.
What goes through your mind when you begin to work on a logo?
I tend to focus on the information in the Contest Brief.
What advice would you give to other designers trying to find success like you have?
Read the full brief. Understand it well and do some research of company’s business to get a good logo idea. After that start designing, without any hurry, until it looks best to you.
If you could speak to someone that’s about to start a contest, what advice would you give them?
Filling out a proper Contest Brief is the most important thing.
So what’s your story about whet life was like before joining 48hourslogo?
I was a Web designer in a private company in Chandigarh for two years. I found 48Hourslogo on google while searching for any good Graphic design contest website. I have been a designer with 48hourslogo for almost two years now.
What has caused you to stick with 48hourslogo for this time?
There is a friendly environment, and I really enjoy the good user interface. I like the Designer Hall at 48hourslogo, where all designers can express themselves. Also, logo copying, clipart, and copyright issues are handled seriously here.
How has your life changed since joining 48HoursLogo?
48Hourslogo helped a lot in my freelance career. Now I can work according to my own schedule in my home environment.
