Cover Letter

This is my creative playground. Here I'll try to let my talents shine as bright as possible. Or at least you might see a glimpse when it's dark.

I'm a London-based all-round Designer & Developer with 10-years' experience in advertising. I highly respect straightforward communication both in new and old-school media, trying to follow the ethos of less-is-more both on screen and paper.

Posters & Print

Having worked closely with Creative Directors and print handlers, I've laid out business cards, catalogues, some outdoors and packaging. It was specially interesting to work on newspaper format.

Branding & Identity

I dig memorable type-based branding. Using basic colours has its benefits for budget-sensitive client: minimalistic approach might free resources for better print materials, or even letterpress for maximum posh.

Digital Design

I think of mobile web and responsive emails like of a folded newspaper. Same styling, typography and overall quality has to be felt between the fingers.

Creative Direction

Often making a good creative requires one to take an asset apart and glue the pieces back together. Other times the whole set needs to be torn down and rebuilt.

Partnership & Awards

Depending on the schedule I'm always interested in creative projects, start-up plans and art extravaganza. I'm also looking for (independent) writers and publishers who are in need of illustrations - naive animals, creatures, noise and cityscapes. Something for children's stories, poetry collections or grim fantasy.

If you think we might hit the same note, let me know about your ideas by my email.
