My name is Pawel Piekarski (pah-vel pyekarsky) and I am a Hybrid Designer, currently based in San Francisco, with over 12 years of experience in both print and digital media.
I specialize in User Interface for Product, Mobile and Web Applications and for Video Games. Although my passion is for Illustration, my focus as a Designer has shifted in recent years to User Experience and Product Design and that has been my main focus.
Ideally, my work highlights my aesthetic as an Illustrator, while creating a fun and engaging User Experience. My goal is always clean, functional Design, with a sense of humor (if possible and applicable). I treat each project as an adventure, and as an opportunity to explore new aesthetics and technologies.
