About. Work & interests

  • My work

    As an experienced and knowledgeable visual communication designer, I work to visually convey a particular message or idea that has noticeable appeal for promoting and displaying a wide variety of products, activities and communications. I have the ability to take a general concept and turn it into a visually compelling product that garners not only attention but favourable results as well. I instinctively know when to use clean lines and muted tones and when instead, to use vibrant designs with bold hues that grab the attention.

    How I work

    Working closely alongside the client, I begin expanding upon an initial concept, ask questions as to the end goal, discuss budgets and deadlines, then agree on the finalised design, fee and due date. Usually I juggle more than one project simultaneously, allocating part of my time to each.

    I meet or communicate regularly with clients to discuss the aspects and goals of a project.

    I stay abreast of the latest technologies in terms of computerised media and common design programmes such as Photoshop, Illustrator and Indesign.
    I design a product from rough drafts, sketches and vague ideas while still knowing how to reach just the right audience.
    I demonstrate excellent proofreading skills while also show high attention to quality and detail.

    I was born in Athens in 1976. I studied graphic design and typography at Vakalo - Art & Design College and I have a Master in the field of web design. I worked for 13 years (2000-2013) at Hellenic Bank Association as visual communication designer and I was responsible of all the print and electronic publications. Moreover I have collaborated with the Institute of Labour of OTOE as art advisor, the Panteion University of Athens, the University of Piraeus, the Association of Young Scientists of European Studies and many more.

  • Gourmet cooking

    The hobby of gourmet cooking entails the skillful preparation of high quality or exotic foods during free time and for pleasure.

    For my meals I consider balances between textures and colors (just like painting), the lasting, memorable effect it has on the diner, and there is an element of striving for perfection that only comes with practice. I use decorative garnishes that basic cooking doesn't bother with.

    Culinary is essentially an art!

    I am by no means an expert but I like to consider myself pretty well capable and comfortable in the kitchen. Everything I' ve learned is self-taught through trial and error, reading cookbooks and recipes and of course going to fancy restaurants all over the world!

  • History & philosophy

    Nescire autem quid antequam natus sis acciderit, id est semper esse puerum
    To be ignorant of what occurred before you were born, is to remain always a child - Marcus Tullius Cicero

    I love history and philosophy.
    Part of what I like to do with my time, is construct mental models of how things are and how things were. I like to imagine the past and to walk through the ages in my mind. The more I read philosophy, the more I fill in the blanks in my understanding and in my mental image of the universe in which we live. I like to try to understand how human beings and societies have changed and how they have remained the same. How are the conditions of society similar and different, what are the motives and bases for action. But to be honest, I prefer from specific eras to study selected personalities such as the Romans from Aemilus Paulus to Marcus Aurelius. Also the Borgias, the Medicis, the Bourbons and the Cardinals that surounded them.
  • Ovelix!

    "The dog" may sound a strange title for a hobby or interest but as a general term it suits the subject well since my dog Ovelix, is a loving and powerful Neapolitan Mastiff (Mastino Napoletano).
    Neapolitan Mastiffs as a breed, are extremely intelligent dogs with a tendency to be independent thinkers. They learn quickly, which is both good and bad, especially for it is very difficult to physically dominate a dog that is as large as an adult human.
