#Introduceyourself Radu Dan- Graphic Designer
Hi! My name is Radu Dan and in September last year I made an account on this wonderful platform. The moment my approval came, I was really excited and right after that I started posting. But as many of you have been discouraged by the lack of votes.
Being disappointed that my posts are not appreciated, I began to post less and less until a time when my colleague came to me and said, "Hey, I've heard of the Utopian. community that repels you if you get involved in open source projects. " I have not been thinking too much and from that moment I started to look for what Utopian means and what are the requirements. The beginning was hard, because nothing good did not win easily, I continued to learn the functioning mechanism of the community and everything became easier.
Being a professional designer and being my only job, everything I did inside the community was in the field of graphics. I am fully grateful that I have discovered this platform and within it quality people.
About how I can tell about my history on this platform :)
To come back from where I left, my name is Radu Dan, my friends tell me Dan, I am 24 years old and I work as a graphic designer. I am currently hired to a company where I have graphics and games graphics. Before that, I was a freelancer for a long time, during which I met and worked with many, very many people. During this time I had projects that I loved and with some of my clients I have long-term collaborations. A project to which I am attached is Flashez. A company in the UK dealing mostly with LED footwear.
In the 24 years of my life I did not just deal with graphics. I can say that I had the chance to do what I like and to live by doing what I like. I finished a music high school, the classical singing section. Yes, I played and I had some concerts just that fate showed me at that moment that the music is beautiful, but unfortunately in Romania, you can do it only as a hobby if you do not have big money to invest in you and your career.
Here I was holding a concert in one of the biggest clubs in town.
After I dropped the music, it followed the last chapter of my life before I grabbed the graphics and realized that this is my way in life.
As I said, I left the music and when I knew I was and I'm attracted to the kitchen. That's why I decided to hire myself as a cook. Just like in music every time we enter the restaurant kitchen, I try to give 110% and that's why in a relatively short period of time I managed to advance and make preparations that I am proud of today. I'll attach some pictures of some of my dishes.
Unfortunately, the kitchen did not last forever. Due to a health problem, I had to withdraw from this noble profession and find something that would not be so physically demanding.
I've loved computers since I know it, I play in paint and photoshop for little. We modify the photos of classmates and even that's how I managed to make the first money. From modified pictures. At first I was tough but I did not leave myself and I was studying for hours on a daily basis. I started by imitating what great designers do, and I've been very helpful with the tutorials on youtube. Slowly, I slowly began to have my first clients. I remember that my first client was an Indian established in England and what I needed was repressed with 8 Lire. To understand what I'm talking about, in Romania with 8 pounds you buy 2 packs of cigarettes. I was delighted and even this little thing gave me confidence to continue.
That is why the only promise I made was not to stop as hard as it may seem to me, because** NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE IF YOU WANT IT.**
