I am fascinated by the idea of creating things and designs that bring value to people and businesses. I feel responsible to do as much as I can to make the world a better place visually. My professional experience includes working with magazines and various print projects, UI/UX research and design projects, branding & rebranding, managing & creating creative projects, strategies and teams.
I can advise how to become a designer or at least great visual communication player, how to hire a designer. Would be glad to discuss and share experiences about some psychological moments of creative jobs, inexhaustable creativity, remote jobs, digigal-nomading, freelancing, self-motivation.
I’ve visited lots of this field dedicated events, courses, would be glad to share, brainstorm or visit an event with like-minded people. Self improvement, emotional health, meditation, understanding yourself and others, neuromarketing, neuroadvertising, perfumery, traveling and more are the topics besides design and creativity I have some knowledge & experience to share.

logos, advertising press designs, web commercials, and brand books. I believe that every single company/individual is authentic, so I spend a lot of time to know my clients and their ideas. This way, I can translate their message through various forms of graphic designs the best.

During my Applied Mathematics studies at Vilnius University, I've volunteered as a costume designer for the faculty's yearly event - MIDI Roko Opera - for straight four years. That must've meant something. Nevertheless, after graduation I've gone to work at a prestigious media research agency for almost 2 years. As time passed, I've realized that my heart wasn't in it, so I've left. Determined to found that fashion brand that I myself wanted to be dressed by. Long story short, that's how ATSIKELI IR VARAI appeared in the landscape and my story as a Jill of all trades started.
I am an experienced product designer on an interminable mission to pursue a perfect blend of style and function for a wide range of interactive product design. Having lived in San Francisco for the last year or so, I've returned to Lithuania quite recently, and are now continuing to design yet another (potentially) world-changing product.
I know how it feels to be confused on a path of the freelancer, as I became one right after university in 2012. Moreover, after we started Uraga company I have experienced both sides of the table.
Freelancers are artists in their souls - we are insecure and vulnerable as we are exposed to judgement by publicly presenting our work to the world. Therefore we don't see freelancing from a business perspective, which is a crucial part of growth that allows us to negotiate with clients, be paid in advance on time, avoid scope freaks or become a slave on one project for too long.
✓ How to charge your client correctly and more than you are really worth
✓ The ground-breaking points to include in your agreement in order to secure your rights, get paid in advance on time, and sleep tight at night
✓ What to do if your client asks for more or for different changes than it was agreed upon
✓ How to calculate taxes and declare it avoiding any issues with inspection
✓ How the magic of marketing can be applied in order to help you break through even further
✓ And much more
All of that can be learned through correct preparation and knowledge. And that is my goal - to share the correct path of the freelancer. By following the code we can withstand all difficulties and grow further doing the things we love.
To fail is to learn, to learn is to grow.
VISUAL EFFECTS ARTIST
If you want to learn how to make a spaceship landing on your street by integrating a 3D model into the shot; or make it seem like you are in Sahara desert without physically leaving your apartment; or transform a normal city scene into a zombie apocalypse atmosphere; or create a car explosion and laser blasts from Star Wars - you need VFX.
In technical terms you have to learn such things as: Compositing; Chroma Keying; Rotoscoping; Tracking; Retouching; Projection Mapping; CGI; etc.
