Design Attic

Past Projects, Side Projects, and Experiments

For me becoming a designer has been an irregular process filled with successes, failures and interruptions. However, one consistent part of the process has been the constant production of ideas, images, interactions and relationships. Through this process I have left a trail of files, prints, web sites, and posts stored away on drawers, folders, CD’s, URL’s and even ZIP disks. Like an attic filled with life-long mementos, a design portfolio is filled with lessons learned, memories and inspiration.

Applications

In the past 5 years I have worked on over 10 web and native mobile applications. They have ranged from long-term projects, to small personal experiements. What draws me to application design is the ability to create solutions that make peoples lives easier and more enjoyable. In the past 4+ years creating applications have been the main focus of my design career.

Marketing

Marketing and Web design was an entry point for me into the field of design. As a visual artist, creating appealing images was something I could relate to. However marketing design was successful only through an effective and meaningful communication with its audience. With marketing shifting from consumer bombardment towards user interaction and engagement I became more and more involved with Interaction and consecutively User Experience design. However some of those early projects were a great opportunity for formal exploration and experimentation with user interactions.

Illustration

Illustration is a passion of mine. It is a skill that has been extremely useful in tight deadlines, and I have often employed it in my work. I have been illustrating as a sort of chameleon for the most part, using the appropriate style for the occasion. However, in the last two years I began to focus on developing a more personal style that reflects my taste and influences.

Art

Visual art is a very important part of my life and I am actively exhibiting and developing my artwork. My artworks are held in a number of private and public collections, and I have been short-listed for a number of prestigious contemporary art awards. Often my design ideas are directly inspired by contemporary art. My artist website can be viewed at: www.petermintchev.com
