I studied Political Science and International Relations at Panteion University of Social and Political Sciences, Greece (BA, 1994), Katholic University of Leuven, Belgium (LLM, Master of Laws Degree, Erasmus student, 1993) and University of Amsterdam, Holland (MA, 1995). I studied Graphic Design (BA) in University of Herdforshire, UK, through the Interactive Design Institute IDI (2016).
After completing my studies in 1989 and for many years I worked at major advertising agencies in Greece, such as McCann Erickson Athens and Up!Set, quiting later on as a Chief Client Officer. I have managed numerous communication and advertising projects, covering a wide range of areas, such as branding, launch campaigns, promotional schemes, media planning, for clients equally diverse: from mobile telephony, food & beverage, retail, banking to NGO’s. In addition, I also produced and co-ordinated, as New Product Development and Advertising Director in leading retail food chains, several innovative and commercial product launches.
Through out these years, several of my team’s projects have been highly appreciated and awarded at Ermis Awards/Greek Advertising Awards, European Design Awards, RedDot Awards. I have presented my work at seminars on Innovation and Marketing Excellence.
Today, I work as a freelance graphic designer and communications consultant on diversified projects. I co-operate with various design agencies (Yellow Bean, Designers-on-call, One9Six), as well as with independent clients in Greece and abroad.
I design by using my sketchbook, unconditional thinking, lots of coffee, Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign. I love branding projects, packaging, advertising challenges, print and conceptual work in general. I often do my own copyright.
I speak, write and work in Greek, English and French language.
Restless and adventurous, I have traveled extensively in Europe, Africa and the USA. As a member of Action Aid Greece I ventured twice to volunteer missions in Ghana and Kenya. I now live in Greece with my family and friends.
