ABOUT ME

Looking for a good designer? Stop looking, you’ve found one…

Hi, my name is Ahmet Kapurtu. I am a freelance web and graphic designer based in Brisbane, Australia. I started designing at a young age with basic pencil and paper drawings, sketching and painting. My father owned a design studio back in the 1990’s and I started using an ancient version of Photoshop on a Mac with a black and white screen. Editing my photos for fun is how I was introduced to designing on a digital platform. After “playing” with Photoshop, Illustrator, QuarkXPress, Freehand, Premiere and other software for years, I decided to study Arts & Design and become a professional. I hold a Bachelor Degree in Visual Arts and Communication Design, a Masters Degree in Digital Design and I have more than 10 years experience in web and graphic design and a good understanding of corporate branding and brand identity.

 

Please feel free to contact me for any assistance or questions you may have.

I have had the pleasure of working with Ahmet for all my design needs for my new business set up, from logo design to website and social media. After a brief meeting showing Ahmet some examples of my work, an explanation of the business I wanted to create and a few inspirational photos, he has created designs for me that are not exactly how I imagined them to be, they are beyond my expectations. Ahmet took the time to listen and understand exactly what I was wanting to achieve. - Tricia Griffin | TRANSLUCERE Makeup Artistry

“The life of a designer is a life of fight. Fight against the ugliness. Just like a doctor fights against disease. For us, the visual disease is what we have around, and what we try to do is cure it somehow with design.”

But it can’t do everything; sometimes designers receive requests that really are technically impossible. And just because you can do something doesn’t necessarily mean you should. Some of the more extreme or outlandish effects and treatments that are possible are not necessarily the best choice from a design perspective — plus, we’ve all seen Photoshop choices backfire, such as a model with an oddly angled arm or leg or impossibly thin proportions. So ask your designer to give you some feedback and constructive criticism; he’ll usually have a pretty good idea of what will or won’t work for your design. _____________________________ follow me @crackedbulb _____________________________ #graphicdesign #designer #freelance #creative #logo #brand #vector #illustrator #webdesign #print #cmyk #artist #art #brisbane #art #illustration #drawing #TagsForLikes #photography #marketing #masterpiece #photooftheday #logodesign #vector #corporate #photoshoot #branding #goldcoast #dontsay #demographic
 Don’t say: [in the middle of a project] “By the way, I’ll need these other related items in addition to the initial design. Can you do that?” Why? Expanding the scope of your design project in the middle of that project, after agreeing upon a certain arrangement (e.g., you’ve agreed on a logo package, and now you’re asking for business cards and a letterhead design in addition), is one of the worst things you can do from a designer’s perspective — especially if you expect those additions to be included in the original price. This is where a creative brief comes in handy (again). Including the full scope of the project within the brief ensures that you and your designer are on the same page and can plan your budget and timeline accordingly, preventing unnecessary frustration. If you do run into extra, unexpected needs during the course of the project, you’ll need to work out a new budget and timeline for those additions. _____________________________ follow me @crackedbulb _____________________________ #graphicdesign #designer #freelance #creative #logo #brand #vector #illustrator #webdesign #print #cmyk #artist #art #brisbane #art #illustration #drawing #TagsForLikes #photography #marketing #masterpiece #photooftheday #logodesign #vector #corporate #photoshoot #branding #goldcoast #dontsay #demographic  think I’ll know what I want when I see it.” Why? Let’s say you’re buying an expensive, tailor-made suit or a fancy, custom dress. Would you say to the seamstress, “Can you make me six versions of the outfit? When I see them, I’ll choose the one I like best and pay for just that one.” Of course not. Just because graphic design is often a digital rather than physical/tangible product doesn’t mean that the designer puts any less time and care into the work. The design process will go more smoothly for both you and the designer if you first spend some time developing a detailed creative brief that helps the designer understand exactly what you’re looking for and are trying to achieve with the design — including information like your intended audience, preferred tone or aesthetic, budget, etc. _____________________________ follow me @crackedbulb _____________________________ #graphicdesign #designer #freelance #creative #logo #brand #vector #illustrator #webdesign #print #cmyk #artist #art #brisbane #art #illustration #drawing #TagsForLikes #photography #marketing #masterpiece #photooftheday #logodesign #vector #corporate #photoshoot #branding #goldcoast #dontsay #demographic  Nursery wall artworks for my little princess  _____________________________ follow me @crackedbulb _____________________________ #graphicdesign #designer #freelance #creative #logo #brand #vector #illustrator #webdesign #print #cmyk #artist #art #brisbane #art #illustration #drawing #TagsForLikes #photography #marketing #masterpiece #photooftheday #logodesign #vector #corporate #photoshoot #branding #goldcoast #corporate #wallartworks  the O'Connell Business Institute letterhead designs by Cracked Bulb Design. _____________________________ follow me @crackedbulb _____________________________ #graphicdesign #designer #freelance #creative #logo #brand #vector #illustrator #webdesign #print #cmyk #artist #art #brisbane #art #illustration #drawing #TagsForLikes #photography #marketing #masterpiece #photooftheday #logodesign #vector #corporate #photoshoot #branding #goldcoast #corporate #wordpress  Nursery wall artworks for my little princess  _____________________________ follow me @crackedbulb _____________________________ #graphicdesign #designer #freelance #creative #logo #brand #vector #illustrator #webdesign #print #cmyk #artist #art #brisbane #art #illustration #drawing #TagsForLikes #photography #marketing #masterpiece #photooftheday #logodesign #vector #corporate #photoshoot #branding #goldcoast #corporate #wallartworks

No designer should be okay with copying another artist’s work outright, and you shouldn’t expect them to. Instead, try pointing out what you like about the design specifically, and ask your designer to do their own take on the style or try certain elements inspired by the work, like a color scheme, basic layout, or general aesthetic (clean, vintage, bold, etc.). _____________________________ follow me @crackedbulb _____________________________ #graphicdesign #designer #freelance #creative #logo #brand #vector #illustrator #webdesign #print #cmyk #artist #art #brisbane #art #illustration #drawing #TagsForLikes #photography #marketing #masterpiece #photooftheday #logodesign #vector #corporate #photoshoot #branding #goldcoast #dontsay #demographic  Meatco's new website is coming soon, designed by @crackedbulb  _____________________________ follow me @crackedbulb _____________________________ #graphicdesign #designer #freelance #creative #logo #brand #vector #illustrator #webdesign #print #cmyk #artist #art #brisbane #art #illustration #drawing #TagsForLikes #photography #marketing #masterpiece #photooftheday #logodesign #vector #corporate #photoshoot #branding #goldcoast #corporate #wordpress
