If you are looking for high quality prepress and design, you are probably at the right place. I enjoy working on many things, from simple letterheads, art reproductions to long, structured encyclopedias.
When I started my first job in the printing industry back in 1995 I had the luck to get onboard just on the turning point when the digital workflow started to take over the analog one. While I was working with various clients, I had the opportunity to learn and participate in all the stages of the production. From typing in the manuscripts, developing graphical films to solving printing problems directly onsite beside the printing machine.
Since 2014 I'm only working with online clients. This allowed me to take a wonderful journey. Some of the highlights I would like to mention is the opportunity to work with some amazing clients, like the publisher Flesk from the US (The Art of Elfquest trilogy by Wendy and Richard Pini, Line of Beauty: The Art of Wendy Pini has been nominated for an Eisner Award in the Best Comics-Related Book category 2018). With the same publisher I had the privilege to work with Arthur Adams on two artbooks (The Marvel Art of Arthur Adams was a Flesk top seller during San Diego Comic-Con, co-published with Marvel 2017). Another great experience I would like to mention is working with a painter from Netherlands, Petar Meseldzija. We spent nearly a year working on an exquisite book written and illustrated by him (The Book of Giants 2015).
With a huge number of publications under my belt (well over 1000) I'm always on a search for new challenges. If you feel I could help you in any way, just contact me.

Sep 2004 - Feb 2014 (9 years, 5 months)
Working closely with the printing house, every job they got from aside was going thorough my hands to ensure the highest possible quality. I was also responsible for laying out, compositing the printing plates, fixing the proper separations.
May 2005 - Oct 2012 (7 years, 5 months)
One of the largest publishing houses at that time in our country. I was called a technical editor, but in fact everything print related was my job, from cover/page design to proofing and printing plate compositing. A huge library of nearly 500 books carries my signature.
