About me
I'm a creative & art director with a huge passion for powerful aesthetics. Over the last 19 years I've been dividing my time between digital agencies and my home studio, this way I had the chance to work many client industries and design disciplines, be it digital and interactive design, illustration and motion graphics or brand and identity. This experience has crushed the borders between disciplines and helped me deliver design solutions and communication strategies that can work across all areas. I believe that bold ideas and outstanding visuals stand together, they cannot live without each other. I have deep technical understanding on how to approach each piece individually always with the goal of turning it into something special and unique.
