Vladimir Dimitrov

Manager, Art Director, Designer

From 2009 to 2011, my initial significant project was my diploma thesis, titled “Self-diagnostic Software,” which secured European funding from Apex Pleven. I led the project for two years, overseeing test development, design, and programming. Upon the completion of the agreed-upon period, I shifted my focus towards participating in design competitions, where I saw excellent opportunities to capitalize on my talents and skills.

2010-2016 I gained recognition by winning awards for design and innovation in competitions hosted by E-on, Coca-Cola, Alfi, Wired, Adidas, Cisco, Diebold, and Fa. One of the most prestigious acknowledgments was the invitation to participate in Henkel’s prestigious competition for the top 10 designers in the field. Licensed and sold ideas from competitions by Festool, Alfi, E-on. Finalist in a Festool competition in Germany.

In 2016, I began working with Recognified GMBH, where I developed expertise in HTML animations. Subsequently, my developments and design skills attracted the most significant companies in the German market, leading to the establishment of Makhina Studio in early 2017.

Since 2020, my focus has shifted towards the “design and innovation” service and the creation of an ecosystem featuring the best specialists from various fields. My primary interest lies in clients who are progressive, forward-thinking, and demand the best.

All the projects showcased on this page have been either created by me, with my involvement in finishing activities, or based on my vision, experience, and guidance.

From 2016 to 2020, we executed over 1500 advertising campaigns for leading companies in the German market through our partner Recognified – encompassing design, scripts, animation, and programming. The opportunity to collaborate with top agencies enhanced our skills and gave us confidence that we are among the best in the field.

We stand out for our quality, fairness, creativity, and innovation. We have demonstrated our loyalty to companies such as Eltrade, Microinvest, Pulse Fitness, Vizitec, Parallel, Hype Software, ะ‘ะพั€ะธะผะตั, ะขะข ะœะฐั€ะบะตั‚, ะ•ะบะพะฝ, Letti Moderni, Styro Design, Mottoreta, essences Bulgaria, ะšะพั‚ะบะฐั‚ะฐ, Lions Clubs International, ะžะฑั‰ะธะฝะฐ ะ ัƒัะต, ะ•ะบะพะฟak, Sunglasses.bg, Vapy, and others.

The wide range of services and the exceptionally complex nature of our “innovation” service require us to collaborate with the best specialists and subcontractors. We prefer to choose the most suitable experts to ensure the highest quality of execution within the defined budget.

Prices

Our prices depend on the specialists we engage and the level of quality we aim for. The time, attention, and motivation dedicated to a project directly impact its quality. We primarily work with contracts covering a package of services, and our prices are within the range of (excluding VAT):

Graphic and Web Design:ย  โ‚ฌ 25-35 / h. Videos and Animations:ย  โ‚ฌ 30-45 / h. 3D:ย  โ‚ฌ 35-50 / h.

Sample prices (excluding VAT):

Retouching: โ‚ฌ 12-25 per image. Logo: โ‚ฌ 220-620. Corporate Identity:ย  โ‚ฌ 650-2100 “Design and Innovation”:ย  โ‚ฌ 2700ย +. Presentations:ย  โ‚ฌ 650-3200. UI & UX:ย  โ‚ฌ 800-3200. Menus:ย  โ‚ฌ 25-55 per page. Video:ย  โ‚ฌ 350-1600. Animated Banners:ย  โ‚ฌ 160-450.

The final price includes the time spent on discussions, meetings, your training, problem-solving, and more.

We preferentially work on innovation-related projects and all services associated with them (prototyping, testing, test printing, 3D, design variations, etc.).

Not everything is about money. No matter how much you pay, many places simply cannot deliver or lack the talent. Give them 5 years, and they won’t achieve even 30% of our innovations. Exceptional and effective design cannot be bought. The fact that you can obtain it from us at a certain price does not mean that our efforts are without value. Can it be said that our innovations, which have changed the world, are worth 5 โ‚ฌ or 10,000 โ‚ฌ… which is still better than a pat on the back and glory.

Service policy (date 1.09.2023)

1. We only execute projects that are meant to be the best in the field. No matter how much we respect our clients’ budgets and possibilities, projects that would make us ashamed to include in our portfolio are not of interest to us.

2. Advance payment: 30-50%. No advance payment for small or test projects.

3. The offered price do not includes extra time spent on discussions, meetings, training, problem-solving, and more. Depending on the client and the project, we charge an additional fee ranging from 1-12 hours x 30 โ‚ฌ per hour.

At the end of the project, we provide a report on the time spent on additional activities, which we add to the price only if the client agrees.

4. Payment: via bank transfer before we provide the final files. We commit to sending the projects within a few hours after payment. In case final corrections are needed, we complete them within one day, except in cases that require more technical time.

5. Preferential terms if the client agrees to include our logo on labels, websites, videos, etc.

6. Professionalism: We only commit to projects where we will work with, or can afford to include, high-level professionals, models, specialists, necessary equipment, etc.

7. We do NOT take responsibility for errors in the files approved for printing. Before printing or launching an ad, we recommend checking for missing text elements, colors, symbols, content, quantity, names, barcodes, and more. Check “letter by letter” for spelling and punctuation errors. Consult with specialists.

8. Corrections of our mistakes are not charged.

9. Number of corrections: Our standard offers include three design corrections. The client needs to consider the project, their desires, and goals, and align with them. In case they cannot or the project requires more corrections, we add 25 โ‚ฌ – 45 โ‚ฌ per hour, depending on the hourly rates mentioned.

10. Additional corrections outside the agreed conditions are charged at 25% above the agreed hourly rate. The reason for this is the disruption of our schedule and work processes, as well as the time lost in external and internal correspondence. The client is obligated to review, check, and provide the information they share. We do not tolerate irresponsible behavior towards our joint work. Clarify dimensions, materials, and printing. Seek the necessary advice on requirements, laws, and norms before we execute the project or in the early stages of design development. Specify the requirements of distributors, online stores, suppliers, etc., in advance.

11. Correction at the final stage or after the project is completed takes more time, as it may require reprocessing of images, preparation of files for printing, etc. (depending on the project).

12. End of the project: when we provide final files approved by the client. With this, our commitment to the project ends. All corrections and the provision of new files are considered as a new project.

13. Working files: for a fee, we prepare working files in which we hide our developments, effects, codes, etc. We do not provide working files related to animations and videos.

14. Collaborative Innovations: by accepting our offer, our clients commit to placing our “innovation by makhina.studio” mark in at least one of the following places: product label/packaging, website, video presentation of the product.

15. Confidentiality: it has its price, as we exclude projects from our portfolio, presentations, and publications. To fully comply with the confidentiality requirements, we negotiate additional payment and conclude a “confidentiality agreement,” under which we may commit to:

– relinquish all rights to the client

– not include the project in our portfolio

– not present the project, information about it, images, correspondence, provided files, or technical information to third parties

– use specialists who will work locally and will not have access to the files

– not send files online, except to the client’s specified email address

– store files only on offline devices

– work only on computers in a secure network or offline

16. Recommendations: We care for clients who care about our success, development, advertising, equipment, quality working environment, etc. To our partners who help with our development, we offer better prices, promotional projects, better quality, and faster execution.

17. We have a policy to terminate work with clients who do not care about our development as much as we care about theirs. The absence of recommendations from a specific client (with a selfish origin) stands out against our standards.

18. We reserve the right to refuse specific ideas from our clients, regardless of the contract. The reputation we have does not allow us to do things that would harm our image and professionalism. So far, we have always reached an understanding, but in case such a situation arises, we hope our clients will accept it as an opportunity to find a better solution.

Note: Working with us and using our products means that you are familiar with our corporate policy. In case of changes to our work policy, we commit to informing you.

P.S. In design, tips are not forbidden and even motivate correctness, responsiveness, and future projects.
