Hello fellows, my name is Sergio Ordóñez Suánez, a 30 years old graphic and web designer, born in Málaga. Mine is not the typical history because I don’t have any academic formation related to the art or design industry, I bought my first computer when I was 20, discovered the internet at 22, Photoshop at 24 and I broke into the design industry at the age of 26.
That´s my twin soul and me.
I’m licensed in psychology but never got the chance to practice. My destiny prized me with a knee injury while I was preparing myself for the entry tests to the scientific police of my country—the perfect excuse to initiate professionally into the design world. That’s how SOSFactory was born in 2003.
I started as a comic colorist, but soon I realized that slavery wasn’t for me. Then I worked six months as a part-time graphic designer in my city, but again slavery still wasn’t for me. So, I decided to start selling my own designs in forums and art communities. I started charging as low as US$15 per logo, then US$50, a year later US$150 , two years later US$250… and finally after some years I’m the one who choose my clients.
Thanks for reading!
