About me

I started as a graphic designer, then I learned desktop publishing. After that I started to play with ideas and video editing. Now I manage a team of creatives and they named me a Creative Director. I like to write and also to think about the future. They call it strategy. So? Me? 25% art director, 25% graphic designer, 25% video editor, 25% writer. There is no specific name for what I do. I just like to learn new things all the time. Doing "the best I can" is part of my belief. Things don't make sense if I'm not giving my best with all my heart. This helps me to reach the next level, whatever that level is. I find it important to always grow and to improve yourself. So, who I am ? I'm someone who loves creativity and uses a big range of tolls to express ideas. https://www.linkedin.com/in/irinagingu/
