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: http://rickdesign.net 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!
