Creativity towards achieving goals.
I am David Zuker, a creative freelance designer that currently lives in Madrid, Spain, but works remotely for clients worldwide. I have adopted teleworking as my main way of working because I believe that nowadays this is the most effective way of taking advantage of the technologic development. It has benefits for the client in terms economy, availability and even motivation (a freelancer has to gain each project, and that is the best motivation to work harder).
I work as professional designer since 2002. I have worked in all modalities: As part of a team, as an associate, as in-house freelance and remotely freelance… this experience has given me the chance to look at this profession through opposite parts of the prism and has allowed me to understand better the problems and needs of the other side.
Since I can remember I have felt passion for the creative world. When I was a child I use to draw compusvely (comic strips, imaginary cities…). At the age of 19 I started to paint with airbrush, creating fantasy artwork that was exhibited at several venues through the Madrid’s Youth Art Network. At this time I also collaborated with national and international Art magazines and fanzines.
After this period, in 1999 I move to London with the intention to train my creative skills and find a profession where I could develop them. I study Art & Design at Westminster College but, after finishing my studies with success, I realise that the world is changing fast and that the digital tools are the present and the future of creativity, wich makes me to give a turn to my career and, during the following years, study Graphic Design and Layout Design first and Multimedia Design later. I also train myself in Flash as an autodidact.
Since 2002, I start working as a professional designer becoming 3 years later in a Flash specialist, (Flash had a great relevance during the last decade). I worked as specialist til 2012. My profile evolved through the following years to a professional that does not sell himself as a specilist anymore and combines his experience in several fields in order to offer a more complete profile that is able to develop projects at all stages.
