Founder & Art Director at Caligrafik Studios

Caligrafik is an illustration and design agency I’ve started during college. I manage a group of visual artists, caricature artists, painters and designers to which I place projects that best match their abilities and expertise. I am in charge of art direction and marketing.

This was and continues  to be a great learning experience because with dealing with clients I meet all kinds of people – from high-class businessmen to local business owners and laymen. Also, here I see every day the value good customer support and the value of the multitude of little things that create a customer’s experience.

DTP & Graphic Designer at ATU Advertising

ATU is a typical local advertising agency. Being the only designer there, I juggled a large number of projects. Most of the work here was print design and DTP. Because of the workload here, I’ve learnt to quickly jump from on project to another.

Education

Sept 2010
to Jul 2013

Finance & Banking, Faculty of Economics and Business Administration

During my time in college, I started a small entrepreneurial project which now has become caligrafik.ro. By mixing the artistic nature of my project with the pragmatism and concrete knowledge of finance and economy, I’ve learnt to look at design and art as a business. I later found that this is a rare trait among designers and visual artists. Although I’m not working in the finance today, I definitely think those were formative years and college was a useful experience.
