About Me V.2

I’m a senior graphic designer, web designer, and multidisciplinary artist based in Sydney working with clients from all over the world creating beautiful and useful digital and physical products.

My Profile

As a designer, I specialize in the creation of dynamic brands with flexible identities, packaging, and web design. Effective solutions through creativity and design with a strategic, adaptable, and global approach. Since I started my career in 2008, I have created brands and visual identities for more than 100 clients.
I don't just work with enterprise-level businesses either, in fact, I love working with start-ups and small, home-grown outfits as well. I appreciate that every business has different challenges, and our experience allows for the right approach at every level.
My goal is simple. Mutual success and growth by giving value.

My Bio

I have a traditional design education, with a Master of Arts (MA) from University American College, Macedonia, and a Master of Design from Torrens University Australi. After spending several years designing at my small design studio in Macedonia, I moved to Sydney and led design in-house at a variety of startups.
For the past 3 years as an independent designer, I've been working on websites and brand identity for digital products and services. I craft product experiences through a solid knowledge of branding and communications.
