I live in Athens, Greece. I am 33. I’ve studied visual communication design at the Kent Institute of Art & Design in the UK (HND & BA Hons). I’ve worked for 10 years now in the creative field as a graphic designer. I’ve worked with “Eyephobia adv”, Athens (’00), “Still Waters Run Deep,” London (’02), “Ideografiki” (’03-’05) and I was also the co-founder of the design group “PoorDesigners” (’06-’09). After that I entered a new media age, and I joined wedia for about a year (2010) and with Some Somethink Creative Group as a digital art director (2011). I’ve also recently started teaching web and graphic design at a design school called IEK Praxis. I have won awards and merits (with the PoorDesigners) in the Greek Illustration and Design Awards (’05,’06,’07). I am currently chairman of the Greek Graphic Designers Association Board. (’10-’12). I held the position of vice-chairman for the period before (’08-’10). I’ve just (March 2012) co-founded with my collegue Yorgos Yiacos, a new creative office “The Comeback”.
