— Hi, I am Zach Roszczewski,
How is that possible you ask? I’m not quite sure actually…
I am a freelance icon & illustration designer living in Encinitas, California. I am also the owner and creator of Flaticons. My passion is crafting icon sets and illustrations that are consistent, functional, and beautiful.
Aside from work, nature is my inspiration. When away from my desk, I like to spend time in the ocean catching waves along the California coast, and venturing out into the wild and exploring the natural world.
I am also a dedicated family man. Nothing brings me more stoke than laughing with my son Hayes and my superhuman wife, Jordan.
• My great grandfather was a Polish immigrant who was a master painter, and passed down his skills to my father, and then onto me and my 3 brothers who were introduced to sketching and painting at a young age.
• To further hone my skills I obtained my Bachelors degree in fine arts with a graphic design concentration at Central Michigan University in 2012. Thats where my passion for illustrative design blossomed.
• I was then flown across the nation and offered my dream job at a start up in Santa Cruz, California to work as a web designer/illustrator for Octopus Creative. It was an epic opportunity that taught me all of the inner workings of a design studio. This is where I realized my passion for icon and illustration design.
• After the years of experience gained for Octopus Creative, In 2014 I said my thank yous and goodbyes, and headed south to the sunny city of Encinitas, California to pursue my dream of running my own design studio with a sole focus on crafting premium icons and illustrations.
• I am now in year 6 of running my own studio and have had the opportunity to work with amazing clients such as Airbnb, Facebook, and Bose to name a few. I am so grateful to be able to spread joy through design to so many people, and plan to continue pushing fun into their everyday experiences. I am more inspired than ever and am always searching for new ways to push the boundaries in contemporary design.
