About the Author

"Whether it’s websites, logos or print materials, my work philosophy is the same: never take any shortcuts and always put my heart and soul into each project because in the end, it’s the small details that count and the more effort I put into a project, the better it represents myself as a person and a designer and at the same time, it represents my client in a manner that’s appropriate to his needs.

If you’re interested in the HTML Templates and Landing Pages I’m developing, you can check them out on my portfolio page on ThemeForest." - Adi
