How would you describe the current conditions in the industry?
At present, they are still average as our social awareness of what crowdfunding is and what possibilities it offers as a tool not only for securing funds, is still low. I would even call it ignorance. However, we are making every effort to ensure that during our next interview, say in a year’s time, I can say the situation is perfect.
* - Absolute pits. ** - Weak. *** - Average. **** - Good. ***** - Perfect!
What inspires you?
Development of new technologies and the widespread phenomena emerging in the media, also social ones.
Good quality advertisements – as a born marketer, I delight in perfect, possibly controversial advertisements that break with the long-standing conventions.
Good cartoons, fantasy books and heavy music.
I read, listen to:
Hejtoholik by Michał Wawrzyniak is the book that I am currently reading. It was part of the record campaign at, which I have already mentioned. Michał Wawrzyniak, the author, discusses the widespread phenomenon of hate, mainly in the network, in addition to addressing the question of how to oppose it, which he does using common language but gets to the point.
I love reading classic fantasy books and industry studies on a day-to-day basis.
When not playing with Cruentus, I like listening to heavy music, such as that played by Meshuggah, Mastodon, Deftones, Textures, Baroness or Alice in Chains.
Cruentus – Neuro City Agenda
Textures – Awake
