I can really dive into thing that I have on my mind. For a Golden Drum competition I've read 6 books on the subject of the topic. I decided to spent hours every month working pro bono on things that I like, but don't like them visually.
This is how I worked for months on redesigning the Literature newspaper before I go to them and offer the new identity. I currently partner with 3D artist on project that would rise awareness on the pollution problem in the country. Without assignment or NGO support, but for a good cause.
