My name is Jiří Brda and I’m a freelance graphic designer based in Příbram, (Czech Republic) specialising in the fields of corporate identity design, web design, print design and branding with the majority of my time spent designing and implementing marketing and promotions for businesses.
Designing has been my hobby since studying at the secondary grammar school, this lead my interest in graphic design and webdesign after my schooling which did not surprise me at all.
Since 2004 (over 10 years experience) I have worked on many projects throughout the years, from small low budget jobs for local individuals to large high profile projects with agencies and national companies. Working on varied and random projects has rewarded me with a variety of different types of knowledge and experience, which I am always adding to my graphic design.
I love crafting unique design for individuals, businesses and organisations large and small. I approach each project with a balance of creativity and strategy, led by a multidisciplinary approach and a broad skill base that encompasses all facets of design. Each project I work on is an opportunity to do some amazing work that connects with the intended audience and brings increased success to the client.

Independent freelancer often outperform agencies in quality, price and timeliness.
To some the word “freelancer” may have a certain stigma of a maverick who ignores rules and misses deadlines. In reality freelancers have usually been around the agency block already and know their stuff. Nobody starts work as a freelancer.
There used to be advantages in employing large agencies for big jobs. Economies of scale, strength in numbers, experience and access to resources were benefits of the big boys over a lone ranger. Nowadays, this isn’t true. All a freelancer needs is a computer and web connection.
If the scale of the job is too much for one freelancer they can simply call on someone else to help. Files can be downloaded from the freelancer’s FTP site and uploaded when finished. Every freelancer has a network of contacts each with their specialities.
When a client enlists the help of a creative freelancer they are creating a one-to-one relationship with a professional. They now know who to phone or email about the project and will get a quick answer without getting stuck in the corporate maze of finding the right department. Last minute changes to a job before it prints or goes live are quicker and cheaper with the freelancer.
Also the freelancer has his reputation on the line with the job and it means so much more to him than to individuals in an agency.
In providing creative and innovative design for my clients I create practical solutions to their needs. My varied client base is the key to my creativity and original design.
As a graphic designer for over 10 years, I have provided professional graphic design services on a full spectrum of projects for a variety of businesses - on time and on budget.
Full service capabilities include complete online and offline graphic design services followed by print, e-marketing, copywriting etc. (see the services section).
I handle any task in minimum time for a very good price. I also offer a discount if you need multiple things done at once. I create individual calculations.
I design my proposals in a way that you are always engaged in the process and we will take your feedback and collaborate with you at each step.
Right from the beginning of our cooperation it was clear to me that Jiří is the man on a right place, and not only by his surname testified, that he will be the perfect team player for our company. He was and still is very flexible, friendly - always handle with my requirements and tasks responsibly. Sometimes I feel that it can´t be possible, because the result of his work is always perfect. I especially appreciate the creativity, responsiveness and finally the speed with which he operates. I highly recommend cooperation with Jiří Brda to all.

I collaborate with Mr. Brda for a very long time. He was the obvious choice when our company needs new brand and corporate design. His work is precise and balanced. He has always preparing several options of graphic design. I think he´s very professional when he just not blindly fulfill my requirements, but discusses with me, and argues gradually the resulting product is enhanced. Even a simple job he has thought out in detail. It is helpful and very thorough.
