I'm an independent art director/graphic designer who specializes in developing, designing and restyling printed media such as magazines and newspapers.
Prior to my career as a designer, I worked in advertising for many years helping brands such as Holland Casino, JVC and Orange, develop and strengthen within a competitive market. Being able to look at brand in a strategic way is a huge plus in my work as a designer today.
