I design things & experiences

I’m Calin Balea, a designer and art director with a passion for simplicity, elegance and meaningfulness.

Simplicity is about subtracting the obvious and adding the meaningful

This is my philosophy

I am what you’d call a generalist designer, a T-shaped professional. I like to experiment with a variety of areas of art and design like lettering, illustration, animation and others but my main focus so far is UI design and branding.

My work is characterized by simplicity, emotion and a touch of elegance in execution. Want to see? Let’s talk.

Calin's sense of aesthetics, combined with deep understanding of one’s business and his pragmatic problem-solution approach backed by mastership of a wide range of tools recommend him for the most challenging projects out there!

‘Truly efficient’ is the phrase that comes to mind when I think about Calin. Calin's ability to juggle multiple projects was remarkable and made a real difference as far as the productivity was concerned.

Calin always aimed for quality and he achieved that during the time I worked with him at eJobs. Creative images; beautiful designs; good communication.
It was a pleasure to work with Calin.
