ABOUT ME

Nina Lesznik

Nina Lesznik - Portrait
SINCE 2015
Self-Employment

My roots lie in production design, where I found my passion for craftsmanship and design. I soon started working avocationally as a production design assistance and since the beginning of my design bachelor study i was able to gain a lot of work experience as a communication designer as well.

Since 2015 I have done various tasks that have solidified my manual skills and operating the common software. My strength lies in conceptual work, in planning how to fulfill a project and which aspects should be covered, even before production has started.
I am very resilient and work precisely under pressure. Another strength is my perfect sense of colors and structures.


2017 – 2022
Design Student (B.A.)

The focus of this study is to learn a conceptual way of designing that works both in individual work as well as in teamwork and prepares us for a visual examination of problems and questions.

In each semester we ask ourselves a joint question and develop individual answers, participate in current design discourses and topics, plan and execute a design experiment.

After my basic studies in Communication Design, I acquired further skills in Exhibition Design, Industrial Design & Product Design through in-depth projects, which makes me a generalist Designer.


SOFT SKILLS

Communication

I‘m not only good at communicating in general, but also confident at constructive discussions. Both in German and English.
Design works best with proper communication and conversation in my experience.

Teamwork

Both in university life and my self-employment, I‘m confronted with working in a team on a daily basis. This interaction is rewarding, inspiring and more than essential for valuable Design.

Dedication

Deadlines, client satisfaction and the stress involved are familiar to me. I‘m able to stay focused in situations of unforeseen and increased work requirements.

Keen perception

I‘m eager to learn new things and skills. My quick comprehension allows me to grasp complex tasks.

Ability to take criticism

„I like criticism. It makes you strong.“
– LeBron James

Self-discipline

In my opinion, one can create outstanding ideas with constant self-discipline and self-control.
