The course of life

I am a designer trying to make people and digital technology “play nice”. I gained a vast and diverse experience, working in the creative field for more than 20 years, with both managing and hands-on skills universally recognised by peers and supervisors.

Proud of

Being a key initiator of a social graphic design project with a massive number of designers participating with posters supporting and promoting social messages inspired by the big riots in Greece (2008).

Taking part in “Crisis is a Greek Word” project (2014). A global initiative to describe Greece in the times of Crisis. The ongoing depression that affects more countries every day has inspired 48 top Greek Visual Communication Designers (including: Beetroot, Designers United, Charis Tsevis, K2 design, Nomint, P6, Kanella, Chris Trivizas design, Dimitris Arvanitis, Polka dot, Sereal designers, Bob Studio, 2yolk etc.), with more than 1,240 international and national distinctions, to participate for the first time at a common exhibition, its sole aim being to convey a message of creativity to the World.

Being the first ever speaker of Digitized (Southeastern Europe’s most important annual meeting for the people working in and around the digital design scene), opening the first event in 2011.
