About me

I am a senior graphic designer who believe that although design is a profession, it’s above all an expression and a passion. I was born in Greece and graduated in 2009 from Middlesex University of London. I gained my experience from different multicultural environments as London, United States, Shanghai and Greece. I have successfully designed solutions for print media and websites with a special interest in UI/UX design & photo manipulation and I’m willing to expand my knowledge by experimenting through various design systems.I believe that graphic design is the one and only approach that can give an accessible, legible meaning and a strong visibility to a business.
