My name is Artemov Sergey Anatolievich, and I currently live in Minsk, Belarus. I work at a design studio as a designer and a visualizer. I also work as a freelancer at nights, thus rendering me with little to no holidays.
The company where I work at the moment has been on the market for 7 years. Before that I worked in another studio, which had been on the market for a period of 15 years. I was employed there for 5 years, but due to the financial crisis and а resulting small amount of orders I felt obliged to look for other opportunities to support my wife and children.
Communication with a client is an art. A professional must be able to adapt to every client and understand their needs. I always ask clients about their preference in colors, their preferred style and the materials which they would like me to use. I also suggest for clients to make at home the selection of pictures with interiors they like.
When I feel that a client may need assistance in visualizing his or her idea, I offer my own vision of style and the style and trend based on what I feel this particular client would like.
I do not take part in competitions in which the viewers are the ones who vote. I believe that such competitions may not always be fair due to the unwritten rule of “the winner is the one who has more friends”.
When I do take part in competitions, I always take part in competitions with judges (for example, the site pinwin.ru). In Moscow I took the third place in the nomination for “The Best Interior Design in Art Deco style”. I have also taken part in Novosibirsk’s competition: “Objectivity Inside 2013”, in which I took the 2nd place, and “Objectivity inside 2014”, in which I took the 1st place.
