I've been around art and design since the early 90's, my father is a journalist and during that time he had started a newspaper for which I was among the first 3 people to build the layout and this is how everything started. I followed art school but on the entertainment part, finishing University of Theatrical Arts and Cinematography as an actor in 1998 and even that made my life for some time, I was drawn back to the graphic design. I've started from the bottom with small stuff and worked my way through to advertising agencies and international work. I've worked for JW Marriott, Nike, Mitsubishi, Nokia and other local and international brands and many of them brought back joy and reconnaissance. Everything that I've done I learned it myself and self teach as best possible with Adobe Suite - Illustrator, InDesign, Photoshop, AfterEffects, Premiere and some Flash and Dreamweaver, CorelDraw, QuarkXPress, Font editing, 3D Max and iWorks & Office Suite. I know my way around computers and I've grew with them from my old ZX Spectrum, through 8086 and the new generation PC's to my forever love Apple. I work only on Mac now so that all that is design to be perfect and sharp.

Experience

Agency life... that was nice for a while, but i wanted a new chalenge. And I got one. I targeted a couple of things when I got to eMAG and the most important one I got it done. Since day one I wanted to change their look, logo, brand, website all major touches to the outside world. I got to do one and help on the rest - changing the website proved to be a great chalenge and an extremly good learing experience.
