A spotlight on Miklós with 8 questions and our favourite pieces.
Miklós Kiss’s works incorporate various facets of architecture, fine art, design, and graphic design. A strong artistic approach and outstanding aesthetic quality characterise his art. His fine art pieces are just as significant as his distinctive style in corporate identity and graphic designs.
Do you remember the moment you knew you wanted to become a designer?
A few years ago an architect friend told me: “I’m at least as bad a graphic designer, as bad an interior designer you would be.” Well, then I started to deal with interior design, too 🙂 Later, I had a similar conversation about fine art, so now I’m back to make fine art works. So, looking back, anger guided me through the important steps of my career or rather the desire to show that I can do this, too.

What advice would you have given yourself 3 years ago?
What is the greatest challenge you have faced in your career so far? How did you overcome it?
My other greatest problem is that I need to make illustrations, typos, logos, interiors, fine artworks, and this is too much for my audience. But I don’t know: Is it a mistake? I have not yet overcome these dilemmas. I solve the problems that arise during my work one way or another. But I think other designers also need to deal with their own backgrounds or careers.
