About me

My name is Lia Kalkou. I am an Award-winning Art Director with more than 14 years of experience. A Visual and Conceptual Artist who can produce exceptional results within a short period of time. I have a real passion for Art and always wanted to follow my dreams. To begin with, I am well versed in different areas of creative design. Highlights of my experience includes: creative direction (conceptual thinking), typography, logotype, layouts, visual identity, corporate & brand name, 2D animation videos & characters, web themes - templates, digital & social media campaigns, landing pages, web contents and web UI design. I am a very creative person and I come up with new and innovative ideas. A team player to the core with strong communication skills, involved in all the key decisions but also at complete ease when working alone. I believe i have all the necessary skills to see a project through from the initial idea, to the conceptual development during which I contribute my creative direction. The key, is my creativity and the ability to produce visual concepts.
