About me
Hi, I’m Vladi, an adventurous graphic designer from Bulgaria, now based in Manchester. I have always had a passion for design and absolutely love anything creative. Back in Bulgaria, I graduated with a Masters degree in Industrial Design and worked for over five years for PRIMAX, an advertising and publishing agency. However, my ambitions and thirst for exploration led me to move to the UK in 2014… …I began in Liverpool, doing freelance graphic design whilst also working an admin job which allowed me to support myself whilst I grew my client-base. And I met some great friends along the way as a bonus! To up-skill and push myself further, I attended Shillington College in Manchester. Graduating in 2018, I was able to secure a creative role with Fanatics straight away. Being part of the creative team there, I have since been working in both print and digital design on an array of exciting projects for major sporting brands such as F1, Ryder Cup, NBA, Real Madrid. I still keep up with my freelance work, as I love variety and any opportunity to practice and develop my craft. I also nurture my passion for photography, having recently worked on projects for Liverpool Urban Hair Show and Hair Heels. I am friendly and open-minded, with a wealth of professional and personal experience and I’m eager to learn and develop, with an ambition of furthering my professional career. I always love meeting new people and sharing ideas, so please, get in touch!
Projects
  • Style Up
    Style UpEarly 2020 Fanatics launched two new ranges for NBA and Nike and two for NBA and Mitchell & Ness. I was part of the creative team which executed the whole project from initial ideation, through research, art direction, photo shoot, graphic design and artwork. This is about the fashion. The culture. The love of the sport. Documenting our talent through the city, we combine mono textures and full colour images with bold type, to create a stylistically executed campaign. It’s energy. It’s attitude
  • Khan Krum Wine Packaging and Branding
    Khan Krum Wine Packaging and BrandingKhan Krum is a unique brand with a story based on a curious historical fact about the victory of the young Bulgarian country over the Byzantine Empire in 811 AD. The visual language is based on references from this era - the Thracian culture and in particular the Glagolitic alphabet used by the people of the newly established First Bulgarian Empire.
  • NON Streetwear Brand
    NON Streetwear BrandNON is a new street wear brand start up. It is all about self-expression and having fun which I tried to achieve simply through play with type and composition.
