Getting to know more contributors on TheHungryJPEG has made us realize that we have so much to learn from these amusing illustrators and designers. We managed to bring in Alona Savchuk, one of the inspiring and passionate illustrators from Design_Savchuk’s store for a short interview. Find out more about Alona from our Q&A session below.
Could you tell us about yourself?
My name is Alona Savchuk. I am from Ukraine, but now I live in Poland with my family. I am a designer and illustrator by trade. I like to draw and I’m glad I’m doing what I love.
How long have you been in this industry?
I have been in the industry for about 5 years and above.
When did you know you wanted to pursue designing and start selling it?
From 2013 to 2015 I entered the Computer Academy STEP and met many interesting people in design and IT. It was at the academy that I learned that you can sell graphic elements and designs there and in 2015 I registered on my first microstock.
What inspires you the most? Where do you get your inspiration?
Most of all, other people inspire me. People who can see the beautiful and unusual and show it to others. I draw inspiration from nature.
Are you a traditional or digital artist? What are your preferred mediums to create your designs and graphics?
I love both a regular A4 sheet and a simple pencil, so I can easily sketch or create something on a tablet. I am a versatile artist.
Could you describe your design style?
I would describe my style as simple and modern. I love experimenting with my designs, so sometimes I only draw in doodle style and use a minimal amount of colors, sometimes I want to create a certain design in a flat style.
What is your favorite part of the designing process?
What I love most about the design process is when the color scheme and composition fit together, and then I see harmony in the illustration. It immediately becomes easier to work on.
Have you ever experienced creative blocks before? How did you handle it?
Sometimes I don’t want to create anything at all. Then I understand that I need to relax and switch my attention to something else. I can sign up for some course, or design my Instagram page, go to museums and communicate with interesting people, and then I will return to creating illustrations again.
Do you have any advice or tips for future graphic designers out there?
I think the best advice is not to give up. Practice a lot and try to notice the details of successful people in design.
If there is something you wish The Hungry JPEG could do for you, tell us.
I consider your site the most active and communicative. I think that most of the offers I receive from you are to participate in various promotions. Thank you for that! I just would like to slightly increase the percentage of participation in bundles!
