As the title implies, this is indeed the ‘about’ page. While I am a private person and generally dread such things I am after-all using this site as my portfolio and introductions are necessary. My name is Bradley Burt and I am a freelance graphic designer. In case you were wondering, the ‘Rubik’ in Rubik Design Studios plays off of the Rubik’s Cube but unlike its namesake, my Rubik’s Cube is one colour, this single colour design symbolizes that I am a design problem solver and no task is too great.
I am passionate about all kinds of design, be it web design, UI interfaces or icon design and while I can certainly create all manner of blindingly awesome corporate type stuff (business cards, letterheads and what have you) I will always have an affinity for freehand illustration as well as retro pixel art.
I am proficient in creating user-friendly interfaces as well as brand identities for private users, small companies or huge corporations and excel at problem-solving. I generally prefer a clean, minimalist style with an attention to detail but will roll up my sleeves in order to tackle complicated design problems if need be.
As I have finally decided to abandon the tradition portfolio (having to lug around an over-sized folder is tedious) in favour of a stream-lined online variant I will be adding new content on a regular basis rather than scanning in all my old work as I have neither the time nor patience to do so.
From time-to-time you will see this logo (pictured below) on certain posts. BB Art is a design identity I created for original or freehand work that I submit online. It is simple, functional and in-keeping with the minimalist design style (sometimes referred to as Swiss Design) I subscribe to.
