I am … and I do …

My name is Luca Molnar and I am a 20-year old digital artist from Hungary. I’ve been working in the industry in past 5 years and I’m studying illustration at the university. My works have been featured on several design blog and in some magazines (Computer Arts, Advanced Photoshop). I’m also writing tutorials quite often; actually I just finished one for Advanced Photoshop issue 82. I am also a member of KDU, my clients include Ogilvy, Midori and MTV Networks. You can check out my works on my website, www.lucamolnar.com

I got into designing …

When I was in high school a guy held a presentation about web design and Photoshop, so me and my best friend went and I liked it. After that I was starting reading tutorials and stuff, but for about 2 years I only cared about web design, and then realized how horrible boring that was. I started creating illustrations and basically that’s the story.

I get my inspiration from …

From anywhere. More specifically I always listen music while I’m working; I’m crazy about all kinds of arts.  I can stare at pictures for hours; I’m also inspired by nature and by great artists. I have a huge weakness for beautiful music videos, lights and fashion magazines.

In the beginning I promoted myself  … . Now I am marketing myself …

This is probably the hardest question, this is the question every new designer is interested in. At the beginning it was really painful, I mean the money was horrible and the clients were even worse, at the top of it I wasn’t a good illustrator at the time either. Anyway I was sending messages to anyone I thought maybe could give some work, I’m talking about freelance projects. Well, this wasn’t really working. Now I’m represented by an agency, so I get commissions from there and sometimes I’m also working on some projects with the KDU, other times the client just see my works and sends me an email.

I think the future of design …

I love talking about it, so thanks for asking! I think we will see more abstract stuff and in general everything will be more artistic, since the designers become better and better. Probably we will see more geometric forms and more gray and pastel colors. I think the illustrations will be more clean and elegant.

3 websites I couldn’t live without …

You can find me …

Anywhere, really. I’m on Facebook. Twitter, Behance, my website. Probably there are many more, but these are the most important.
