Friday Interview #5 — RickDesign

Here is the 5th interview! This one with Rick, you should check his work out, he is very talented and a promising designer!

As we usually do, start off with explaining who you are and what you do!

Hi, my name is Rick Goossens, better known as RickDesign and I am a graphic designer.

One of Rick’s recent thumbnails.

What would you say is the most important thing when designing?

That’s hard to tell, I would say creativity and originality. Those are the most important in my opinion.

Where do you see yourself at the end of this year, and in 5 years?

I hope I’ll see myself at the end of next year as a designer who doesn’t only makes FIFA things but also other things like advertisements etc. Not only as practice but also for clients. It’s very hard to break out as a desinger in these days where there are so many great designers. So I don’t think I will be much bigger by the end of this year but it would be fantastic if that would be the case over 5 years.

What is your favorite design you’ve ever produced?

That’s a hard question, I’m really pessimistic about my work but, if I need to choose a thing that I like the most I would go for one of my kit designs. I really enjoy making them!

Name a few designers that you seek inspiration from when designing, and why.

Yaspar, because I like his style of thumbnails, I also like GraphicHunters. His thumbnails/designs. They are so colorful and creative. He always makes something pop out that makes it look so nice.

Finally: where can everyone find you?

Twitter is the platform I use the most (@RickDesign_) but I also have my own website: it’s not done yet but it will be very soon.

Thanks to Rick for participating this week, let me know who you want to see next and check him out!
