I've been working as a freelance Graphic Designer for 9 years and I am located in Athens, Greece (GMT+2) - I specialize in:
Graphic Design, Web Design, Logo Design, Mobile/UI Design, Animation, Video Editing
I have a quick turnaround when working and my main goal is to maintain great working relations
with my clients for projects we work on. This is the work plan I use:
- Gather the project details/information from the client
- Make sure both sides understand the project requirements
- Start working on the project
- Update the client with work progress
- Apply changes that may be required
- Finalize and deliver work
Web design started to attract me when I first experienced the web and it's changes back in the day, when it started growing quite fast and you could see these
changes taking place day by day, whether it was new web standards, or tools that were becoming available and greatly helped the evolution of the graphics sector.
I was taking part in web communities and forums, so seeing all these forum signatures / forum themes or elements (buttons, logos etc) made me to start searching
how I could create these and by which methods. I immediately started learning Adobe Photoshop by following plenty of tutorials I found on major tutorial sites
on the web, and soon enough I had my own signature and forum which helped me on the long term to get even more involved. I remember writing tutorials on a phpbb forum that I had also created a theme for not long after.
After becoming more familiar with the program itself but also the aesthetics of web design, animated graphics started attracting me even more. After following
the same technique, I started learning how to animate using Adobe Image Ready which was available back then. Buttons and affiliate logos in my forum were
replaced by animated ones which made the web feel more alive. And right on time, when I was started noticing that Image Ready was a bit limiting in what you
could do with it I found an animation created by Alan Becker, in 2006. An amazing animation called Animator vs. Animation which introduced me to
Macromedia Flash and now Adobe Flash. By 2007 I was selling my own flash animations and projects in a well known stock flash site - FlashDen.
In 2010 I attended a Public University in Greece, on the Technological and Programming department and graduated
in summer 2012. Currently I am available for freelance work and you can contact me below to discuss about projects.
