Multimedia Designer & Photographer

Hello, my name is

Mirko Fabian

Multimedia Designer

About me

I am an enthusiastic Multimedia Designer & Photographer yet based in Germany. Specialized in Logo/Branding design, Automotive- and Nature Photography and Video editing in DaVinci Resolve.

I'm a versatile creative problem solver and artist

Ever since I’ve been a creative kind of person. I find myself often in the realm of photographer but it took years to make it one of my professions. First taking a different career path in IT, but never really fit in. Due to the circumstances of 2020 I decided going my very own way in becoming a self-taught Multimedia Designer. Going this way taught me things I’d have never learnt by going the ordinary way. It’s harder though but in the end it’s more rewarding. I learned for my life and not only for my career. 

What I do

From understanding your requirements, designing a draft, and delivering the final product, I do everything that needs to be done to help you achieve your goals. 

Logo Design

I help grow your business and make it stand out by creating a compelling logo and branding design.

Graphic Design

I design posters, flyers, and cards for your specific needs. No matter if for digital or printing purposes.

Web Design

I'm experienced in designing websites using WordPress and the Elementor Plugin. Additionally I don't hesitate to further customize it with Code if needed.

Stock Photos

Need a photo for your projects? Feel free to check out my free to use portfolios on Unsplash, Pexels & Pixabay.

Photography

Looking for a photographer who's open to something new? I'm excited to work on new projects that lay outside of my comfort zone.

Videography

I shoot and edit videos for a unique viewing experience. I'm specialized in color correcting/grading in DaVinci Resolve.

soft skills

  • Empathy

    I'm empathetic and sensitive myself so it's easy for me to "read" other peoples emotions.

  • Determination

    Once I set a goal there's nothing that could possible stop me from achieving it. I do "Whatever It Takes"

  • Tolerance

    Since I'm on my own way I'm open and tolerant when it comes to life itself.
